Patriot Sector 5 PC3-20000 (2500MHz) 4GB Kit - The Packaging and Modules

A 2500MHz DDR kit strolls into the labs. How do we go with it? It's 2500MHz DDR after all.

The Package

Checking out the package, there's not much going on. The thin package tells us no active cooling comes with the kit and with a default speed of 2500MHz DDR we're worried that we might run into some problems.

 

The Modules

For such a high speed kit there doesn't seem to be a whole lot going on with the heatsink. It's fairly standard looking and again the lack of active cooling makes us think that getting to the stock 2500MHz DDR speed won't be quite as easy as we're used to.

 

As for the overall look, there's not much going on with both sides having the Sector 5 logo and one side having the Patriot one while the other has a sticker that gives us a rundown on the kit like its model, speed, timings and more.
