Today's best Patriot Viper Steel Series DDR4 64GB (2x 32GB) MHz Kit deals

Like many other memory specialists, Patriot has an extended portfolio of products. However, the Viper Steel series is still one of the brand's best-balanced lineups and has made its way into out Best RAM list multiple times. The only caveat with the Viper Steel series is Patriot's prerogative to sell the memory as a single module or in a dual-channel package. The limited combinations effectively keep out quad-channel users unless they opt to combine kits, which is something that we don't recommend. Currently, Viper Steel memory kits start at DDR and top out DDR The dual-channel configurations come in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB flavors. Here we're specifically looking at the Patriot Viper Steel DDR C18 2x32GB kit.

The Viper Steel's aluminum heat spreader comes in a gunmetal grey color with black highlights. The color theme helps the memory modules blend in seamlessly with the majority of PC builds. Doing justice to its name, the Viper Steel flaunts an aggressive exterior that features the brand's Viper logo in the center. The same design is present on both sides of the memory module. 

The Viper Steel memory modules have a height of 45mm ( inches). A matte-black PCB is hidden underneath the heat spreader. Some users might be happy to know that Patriot has restrained itself from putting any RGB lighting on the Viper Steel memory modules. The company only incorporated a simple, black plastic insert on top of the memory modules to represent the Viper branding.

The Viper Steel memory kit is comprised of two dual-rank memory modules with a density of 32GB each. In terms of ingredients, Patriot cooks up the Viper Steel memory modules with an eight-layer PCB and Hynix integrated circuits (ICs), with the H5ANAG8NMJR-VKC part number. The ICs are commonly known as Hynix MJR, or just M-die among memory enthusiasts.

Upon first boot, the Viper Steel runs at DDR, with timings set to Like any other high-speed memory module, the Viper Steel features one XMP profile that facilitates the entire setup process. In this case, the Viper Steel kit is certified to operate at DDR and timings while pulling V. For more on timings and frequency considerations, see our PC Memory feature, as well as our How to Shop for RAM feature.

For the most part, the Viper Steel DDR C18 memory kit outperformed the Crucial Ballistix DDR C16 memory kit. There were scenarios where the competition came out on top, such as the Microsoft Office and Cinebench R20 benchmarks. However, the margin of victory in both tests was less than 1%. The Viper Steel was the undisputed winner in the gaming tests, though.

The Viper Steel solidified its position in terms of general and gaming performance on our RAM benchmarks. On the AMD platform, however, the Crucial Ballistix memory kit took home the crown in 7-Zip decompression, LuxMark, y-cruncher and both HardBrake encoding tests. Once again, the performance difference was less than 1%.

Overclocking and Latency Tuning

Even though the Viper Steel doesn't shine in overclocking, there's a little bit of room for improvement at DDR if you're willing to increase the DRAM voltage. At V, we successfully tightened the advertised timings of down to

Bottom Line

The Viper Steel DDR C18 is a terrific memory kit for content creators or professionals that don't have the luxury of many DDR4 memory slots. Performance isn't a problem because the memory kit excels at everything that you throw at it. 

Patriot practically binned these modules to the max, so overclocking headroom is almost non-existent, even if you're willing to go crazy on the voltage. But running the Viper Steel at the advertised frequency should be more than sufficient in the majority of scenarios.

Patriot prices the Viper Steel DDR C18 64GB memory kit very attractively, too. At $, the memory kit is neither cheap nor expensive. The Viper Steel finds itself right in the middle of the competition. Given it stands tall in terms of performance, that makes this kit easy to recommend for those who need speed and density in a dual-DIMM scenario.

Patriot Viper Steel RGB MHz (2x 16GB) review - Introduction

Patriot Viper Steel RGB DDR4 MHz CL20 32 GB (2x 16 GB)

Steel Viper has the RGB now

Today, we are looking at Patriot Viper Steel RGB MHz CL20 (yes – 20!) memory in a 32 GB set consisting of two 16 GB modules. I can say that we’ve had our fair share of experience with Patriot RAM. We had an opportunity to test a similarly clocked kit ( MHz) from the Viper Steel series (so no RGB there), but the capacity was 2 x 32 GB back then, and the latencies were quite surprisingly better, at Before that, we also reviewed one of the fastest 2 x 8 GB kits in the range, clocked at MHz with CL19 latency. Ok, but let’s get back to the task at hand, meaning the kit that this article is about. The Viper Steel RGB series has been introduced on the 18th of December It’s not the first kit from Patriot with RGB lighting, either. The regular Viper series got this feature over two years ago, and it looked good (we even had the opportunity to check it out). The Viper Steel RGB series has a lightbar with 5 RGB multi-zones embedded into the top section of the heatsink, and it’s clearly all about the looks.

 

 

You can use Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light, or ASRock Polychrome Sync to control the RGB lighting. What else can we say about this product line? The range of speeds is very limited. You get to choose between MHz (CL18) and MHz (CL20), with XMP support. The latter should suit most systems fine.

 

 

The capacity is between 8 GB (single stick) and 64 GB (2 sticks). The manufacturer claims that all modules are hand-tested to provide the best compatibility with AMD Ryzen and Intel systems. Another thing that looks good is the use of a ten-layer PCB, which should improve stability. The provided review sample consists of two 16 GB modules with a frequency of MHz and CL20, which sounds … just bad. Even though the speed looks very nice for Ryzen systems (and it’s not bad for Intel either), the latencies are a bit disappointing. On the positive side, the Patriot Viper Steel RGB is a relatively low-profile kit. According to the manufacturer, it’s 44 mm tall, so it shouldn’t cause any problems with most CPU coolers on the market. As for the speed, MHz is the highest frequency that this product range has to offer (albeit with CL20). There are also kits with CL, so that’s still not looking great. What can we say here? Patriot went for the looks, and not so much the performance. What’s the result of this approach? We’ll find out a bit further into this review. We are going to check how this kit performs on two platforms: a Zbased motherboard/CPU, as well as an X one. We are traditionally still going to try and squeeze something more out of it, so maybe the standard MHz is not the last word here (or at least we might manage to fine-tune the latencies). If you prefer, you can always stay on the safe side and stick to the advertised frequency and latencies using XMP. The Viper Steel RGB series is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. The MSRP is ~ $ (16 GBx2, MHz). Ok, next page, please.

Patriot sent us the Viper Steel for review. A memory kit that I&#;ve been eagerly waiting to get tested ever since I got the news mainly for a couple of reasons. First off, this is the first memory kit we&#;ll test for which is pretty important. I don&#;t even know if my aging test system could handle another MHz kit without much effort. Price for RAM modules have also normalized for the past few months with this particular model hoovering at around $ USD or about Pesos internationally.

The Patriot Viper Steel we got is the MHz variant in a 2x8GB kit. It is non RGB, yet it utilizes a custom designed aluminum heat spreader for that desirable clean steel-look. The Viper Steel memory modules are also hand tested and validated for most AMD and Intel based systems. Good enough? Let&#;s check it out on the review.

Gaming wise, the Patriot Viper Steel is pretty much the best MHz kit we&#;ve got even though its performance difference compared to others is not really tangible in real world gaming scenarios.

Final Thoughts

The Patriot Viper Steel is one of those set and forget it memory kits. Well, most memory kits are &#; unless you&#;re a bloke with an aging test system. Just like dear me. Note that your mileage will still vary though so I cannot fully vouch this memory&#;s compatibility. So far, it ran great on my B, X, Z and Z chipset based systems.

As for performance, this is one of the fastest MHz kits we&#;ve tested so far. It won over at the synthetics, traded blows with the last year&#;s champion at real world benchmarks and is just the fastest on gaming. Even though I must say at gaming, the performance difference is hardly any different at all compared to the rest.

Price wise, you are looking at a MHz memory kit with a local price of Pesos at PCHub, or about $ USD at Amazon. A good value, considering the competition has around Pesos price offset on their dual MHz kit models. It&#;s a bit tall though &#; something that may put off some system builders who requires every bit of clearance they could have.

Overall, Patriot did an awesome job with the Viper Steel this side of It offers excellent performance, neutral design and value on top of its LED lit facade. A memory kit that does what it needs to without the RGB drama.TechPorn Awards (1)

Patriot, who isn't a stranger to our list of Best RAM, has many interesting product lines in its broad repertoire. However, the memory specialist recently revamped one of its emblematic lineups to keep up with the current RGB trend. As the name conveys, the Viper Steel RGB series arrives with a redesigned heat spreader and RGB illumination.

The new series marks the second time that Patriot has incorporated RGB lighting onto its DDR4 offerings, with the first being the Viper RGB series that debuted as far back as While looks may be important, performance also plays a big role, and the Viper Steel RGB DDR memory kit is here to show us what it is or isn't made of.

Viper Steel RGB memory modules come with the standard black PCB with a matching matte-black heat spreader. It was nice on Patriot's part to keep the aluminum heat spreader as clutter-free as possible. Only the golden Viper logo and the typical specification sticker is present on the heat spreader, and the latter is removable.

At 44mm ( inches), the Viper Steel RGB isn't excessively tall, so we expect it to fit under the majority of the CPU air coolers in the market. Nevertheless, we recommend you double-check that you have enough clearance space for the memory modules. The RGB light bar features five customizable lighting zones. Patriot doesn't provide a program to control the illumination, so you'll have to rely on your motherboard's software. The compatibility list includes Asus Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync, and ASRock Polychrome Sync.

The Viper Steel RGB is a dual-channel 32GB memory kit, so you receive two 16GB memory modules with an eight-layer PCB and dual-rank design. Although Thaiphoon Burner picked up the integrated circuits (ICs) as Hynix chips, the software failed to identify the exact model. However, these should be AFR (A-die) ICs, more specifically H5AN8G8NAFR-VKC.

You'll find the Viper Steel RGB defaulting to DDR and timings at stock operation. Enabling the XMP profile on the memory modules will get them to DDR at The DRAM voltage required for DDR is V. For more on timings and frequency considerations, see our PC Memory feature, as well as our How to Shop for RAM story.

The loose timings didn't substantially hinder the Viper Steel RGB's performance. Logically, it lagged behind its DDR rivals that have tighter timings. The Viper Steel RGB's data rate allowed it to run in a ratio with our Ryzen 5 's FCLK so it didn't take any performance hits, unlike the DDR offerings. With a capable Zen 3 processor that can operate with a 2, MHz FCLK, the Viper Steel RGB will probably not outperform the high-frequency kits.

Overclocking and Latency Tuning

Image 1 of 3
Image 2 of 3
Image 3 of 3

Overclocking potential isn't the Viper Steel RGB's strongest trait. Upping the DRAM voltage from V to V only got us to DDR Although we had to maintain the tRCD, tRP, and tRAS at their XMP values, we could drop the CAS Latency down to

As we've seen before, you won't be able to run Hynix ICs at very tight timings. That's not to say that the Viper Steel RGB doesn't have any wiggle room though. With a V DRAM voltage, we optimized the memory to run at as opposed to the XMP profile's timings.

Bottom Line

It comes as no surprise that the Viper Steel RGB DDR C20 will not beat competing memory kits that have more optimized timings. The problem is that C20 is basically at the bottom of the barrel by DDR standards.

The Viper Steel RGB won't match or surpass the competition without serious manual tweaking. The memory kit's hefty $ price tag doesn't do it any favors, either. To put it into perspective, the cheapest DDR 2x16GB memory kit on the market starts at $, and it checks in with C Unless Patriot rethinks the pricing for the Viper Steel RGB DDR C20, the memory kit will likely not be on anyone's radar.

Patriot Viper Steel RGB DDR 2x16GB Review (Page 1 of 10)

By: Jonathan Kwan (Hardware) and Aaron Lai (Testing)
February 19,

For those who were in elementary school in s or earlier, I want to ask you this question: Were playgrounds cooler back then compared to what we have now? I was recently talking to a friend who grew up in the s, and I was lamenting how today's playgrounds simply do not stand against the stuff we had. Simply put, today's playgrounds are boring and uninteresting. Some of the stuff I remember back then include a freestanding, open-air metal spiral slide that was probably 30 feet tall, a massive climbing dome with its highest point 15 feet above the ground, and a very steep hill that we were allowed to toboggan down in the winter that is no doubt illegal today even for adults. The spiral slide was so tall you could feel it shake from the wind and it had a straight staircase where we lined up on every step there was and waited for our turn. I am not even sure if the stairs were even made to hold that many people at the same time, and only God knows what would happen if someone at the top fell backwards. With regards to the climbing dome, I was pretty sure we were not allowed to go to the top, but recess supervisors generally turned a blind eye if you appeared responsible. As for the ultra-steep tobogganing hill? It was probably the most fun I have ever had in my childhood. And let us be honest here -- none of us died and we all lived to tell the story. Personally, I did not even get injured once. I apologize to all the kids today. We grew up using these facilities without any problems, and then it was also us who decided it was too dangerous and took it away from all of you. With all this nostalgia in mind, I want to ask a somewhat related question: Was RAM cooler back then without RGB LEDs? No doubt there were some interesting stuff if we turn the clock back 15 years or so. Some of my highlights include the OCZ Special Ops Edition Urban Elite, OCZ Reaper HPC, and OCZ Flex XLC. So to answer the question on whether RAM was cooler back then without RGB LEDs, let us take come back to now and take a look at the RGB-enabled Patriot Viper Steel RGB DDR 2x16GB.

Our review unit of the Patriot Viper Steel RGB DDR 2x16GB came in a small, brown corrugated cardboard box from Fremont, California, USA as always. Using the UPS Standard service, everything arrived in excellent condition from Patriot's headquarters to us here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada for our review today. We have last reviewed RAM from the company only a few months ago with the Patriot Viper RGB DDR 2x16GB, but the last time I personally looked at any RAM from the company already goes back to with the Patriot Viper RGB DDR 2x8GB. It is crazy how time flies.

I have always found Patriot's retail memory packaging to be interesting, and the latest Viper Steel RGB is no exception. As you can see in our photo above, the Patriot Viper Steel RGB's retail box design is quite large for a memory kit. I am a big fan of products that come in an actual retail box and not a blister pack. The black background is clean and complemented by the Viper logo faded into the background. Two parallel windows show off the memory modules proudly, while the text Viper Steel RGB is boldly shown in the space between the windows. The red Viper Gaming by Patriot logo is located at the upper left-hand corner. Meanwhile, on the upper right corner of the box, you will find a label indicating its model, capacity, configuration, and speed. Our particular variant features a black heatspreader. Lastly, an array of icons indicating its compatibility with lighting control software from major motherboard manufacturers is found along the bottom. Inside the box is a clear plastic clamshell package to hold the memory in place.

Before we move on, let us take a look at the features and specifications of the Patriot Viper Steel RGB DDR 2x16GB, as obtained from the manufacturer's website:

• Capacity: 32GB (2 x 16GB)
• Base Frequency: PC (MHz)
• Base Timings:
• Tested Frequency Profile 1: PC (MHz)
• Tested Timings:
• Tested Voltage for Profile 1: V
• Format: NON-ECC Unbuffered DIMM
• Pin Out: Pin

Out of the box, you will receive each memory module in the Patriot Viper Steel RGB kit packaged in its own compartment in the clear plastic shell. Besides that, one Viper Gaming sticker is included for you to show off your brand pride. There is nothing else included, but I am not sure what else you can expect from a DDR4 kit either, haha.

A screenshot of the memory tab in CPU-Z with Patriot's Viper Steel RGB DDR 2x16GB installed. The SPD timings table in CPU-Z reads standard JEDEC specifications programmed into the memory as well as XMP data for running the memory at various speeds. Our ASUS Prime XPro motherboard used for testing had no issues detecting and working with the Viper Steel RGB RAM right out of the box using the latest BIOS revision. The Patriot Viper Steel RGB DDR 2x16GB retails for approximately $ at press time.

Patriot Viper Steel DDR4 MHz (64GB) review - Introduction

Patriot Viper Steel DDR4 MHz CL18 64 GB (2x 32 GB)
Plenty of PATRIOTic RAM (with a radiator) made of steel!!  

Today, we are looking at Patriot Viper Steel MHz CL18 memory in a 64 GB set consisting of two 32 GB modules. At the beginning of , we had an opportunity to check a higher-clocked kit from that series ( MHz), but the capacity was 2 x 8 GB. Patriot’s Viper Steel Series is offered at speeds ranging from MHz up to MHz, with XMP support. You have to keep in mind that you’d need a suitable CPU and motherboard to take advantage of the MHz variants, as it’s not possible to achieve that frequency “automatically” with just any system. You can find the list of suitable combinations on the product page.

There is no RGB here, but the looks of this model are really great and should fit most builds. There are no colour variants to choose from either, so all you’ve got to do is match the desired capacity and frequency. Kits consisting of 32 GB modules are few and far between, especially clocked as high as the reviewed product.  MHz with CL18 sounds really good. It’s almost optimal for Ryzen-based systems, considering the fact that this is dual-rank memory (you can check the performance benefits of various RAM settings in our article here).

 

 

he Patriot Viper Steel series is relatively low-profile (45 mm of height) so it shouldn’t cause any problems with CPU coolers. MHz is the highest frequency available from Viper Steel for the 64 GB kits. We are going to check how it performs on two platforms: a Zbased motherboard/CPU, as well as an X one. We are traditionally still going to try to squeeze something more out of it, so maybe the standard MHz is not the last word here (but even that a good value for Ryzen systems). On the other hand, you need to remember that, until now, it was already quite an achievement if a kit like that had even a MHz clock. If you prefer, you can always stay on the safe side and stick to the advertised frequency and latencies, using  XMP. Naturally, these kits are optimized for both AMD and Intel systems (which will be tested in this review). The Viper Steel series is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. The MSRP is ~ $ (32 GBx2, MHz). Next page, please.
