Patriot has managed to impress us on a number of occasions, and the new Viper Fin DDR3 memory is extremely impressive to say the least. In fact, it managed to achieve some pretty high scores while keeping the voltages at the moderate level. Most boards will be able to supply 1.9v to the DDR3 memory bus without much effort, but it's when we need beyond 2v that we start to see things getting interesting. Cooling needs to be improved and the boards get a bit more selective.
The Viper Fin modules were extremely well designed for the cooling aspect; while we didn't have our temperature gun on hand for this review (it arrived after testing), the touch test at full load when overclocked was extremely good as it was only mildly warm. With good case flow these modules will cool themselves quite nicely.
As for price and availability, at the time of the review we weren't able to find many vendors with these modules, but they should start to appear pretty soon. As for price, they are on the high side, but for modules of this speed caliber, you're naturally going to pay a premium.
