What customers say about "Features"
Patriot Memory VIPER 4 3000MHz 16GB Dual Channel DDR4 Kit
  • RAM memory really good quality, value for money ok, nice as well to see!
  • The installation of the memory is simple, they are not very bulky modules that will cause problems when installing them on the board.
  • They are perfectly compatible with Ryzen, although in principle there would be no problem with Intel.
  • Looks good. Just about fit under my air cooler.
  • It's really tall, can sometimes be a pain if you've got RAM slots close to a fat CPU cooler.

  • This memory is recognized as 2133 MHz when installed without any action.
