Customer’s reviews

Users were satisfied that the memory starts at the promised frequency of 3200 MHz using the Intel XMP 2.0 profile. The advantages of the memory are appearance, fast and cold work, good price relative to another similar memory.

The main disadvantages of memory buyers attributed its peering. Also, some users could not start the memory at a frequency above 2400 MHz, but this problem can rather be attributed to the motherboard or Bios. Someone from the buyers launched RAM at 3200 MHz frequency after updating the Bios firmware. Some users were complained about high memory heatsink, but the problem was solved by removing its upper part.

Buyers claim that the models released on Hynix chips are significantly inferior to those released on Samsung chips. Its not possible to determine kind of chip in the shop. And as the manufacturer himself responded to users, Patriot Memory does not guarantee a certain vendor of chips of manufactured memory modules. The overclocking of the memory modules does not depend on the color of the used PCB-boards. Acceleration rates, in many cases, depend on the performance of the system of one or another experimenter. It so happens that enthusiasts reach speeds well above those declared by Patriot Memory as recommended.

At first, I was a little skeptical buying patriot ram. I was building three high end video editing systems for a client. This ram goes to 3200 Mhz easily. I ran stability tests for 48 hours each system. This ram held up really well. It was rock solid, no crashes, nothing. All of the ram had really nice metal packaging that I have not seen in a long time. For those of you wondering, I used the Asus X470 Prime Pro for the motherboard and a Ryzen 7 2700x for the CPU. I think they could sell this RAM for way more. If you buy this under $ 350, it is a steal.
