Our test system today consists of the GIGABYTE X48T-DQ6 motherboard. We have upgraded from our P35T motherboard as it did not support XMP which is one of the main tests we wanted to run on the modules. Today we compare the Patriot Viper Fin modules against the OCZ 1600MHz XMP modules we have already tried in the past, with great success.
Our tests consist of the modules at 1333MHz which is the highest official speed that JEDEC supports. We then cranked the system up to run the modules using the XMP 1600MHz profile, and then we decided to go for the highest clock speeds we could get.
Our maximum memory speed tests were 908MHz for our Patriot samples and 910MHz on our OCZ XMP modules.

EVEREST Ultimate Edition is an industry leading system diagnostics and benchmarking solution for enthusiasts PC users, based on the award-winning EVEREST Technology. During system optimizations and tweaking it provides essential system and overclock information, advanced hardware monitoring and diagnostics capabilities to check the effects of the applied settings. CPU, FPU and memory benchmarks are available to measure the actual system performance and compare it to previous states or other systems.
At 1333MHz and 1600MHz, the OCZ memory managed to sneak in front, thanks to tighter memory timings at these speeds. However, when we push the modules to max overclocking there is little difference between the two candidates. This is quite possibly because the CPU isn't able to use much more bandwidth.
