Viper RGB DDR4 Memory Overview

Designed with XMP 2.0 support, Patriot’s Viper RGB DDR4 PC4-25600 3200 MHz gaming memory, model number PVR416G320C6KW, sells online for $164.99 (Newegg | Amazon) as of October 2018. This PC4-25600 kit includes two 8GB modules and an installation guide.


Patriot specifies Viper RGB’s standard JEDEC ‘Base Frequency’ as PC4-17000 (2133MHz), and markets the kit as PC4-25600 (3200MHz) to match it’s tested XMP speed of PC4-25600 (3200 MHz). We used AIDA64 to verify these speeds, and thoroughly tested each module for stability without issue – even beyond 3200 MHz.


The Patriot Viper RGB series offers gamers a fully-customizable DDR4 solution, with five speeds in the black heatshield design and three in the white trim, ranging from PC4-21300 (2666MHz) up to PC4-33000 (4133MHz).


While gaming memory is often subjected to harsh overclocking that can reduce the product’s lifespan, Patriot offers their Viper RGB with a limited lifetime warranty.


Available with either a black or white painted aluminum heatshield, Viper RGB offers improved heat dissipation stable performance. Five RGB lighting zones are all fully customizable using Patriot’s free Viper RGB Software.


While relatively new to the desktop hardware scene, RGB memory modules are lighting up an otherwise dark and forgotten part of the system’s internal landscape. Patriot’s Viper RGB DDR has the performance to make the modules sing, and the lighting effects to make them glow.
