If you want to get the most out of your nForce 790i motherboard, you owe it to yourself to check out the Viper PC3-16000 Extreme Performance memory kit. Patriot leads the way with their latest DDR3-2000 offering as it provides a killer combination of speed and value.
..Patriot tries to make the choice very clear with one of the fastest memory kits currently on the market. Specially designed for the high end 790i chipset, the Viper PC3-16000 kit sizzles at a stock speed of DDR3-2000. You read that right, 2000MHz! It also weighs in at 2GB (2x1GB) with timings of 9-9-9-24. Sporting an nVidia inspired bright green paint job, there is no mistaking these sticks among the sea of RAM choices available.
The Patriot Extreme Performance Viper series performed exceptionally well during benchmarking and showed its overclocking headroom by hitting 2100MHz on stock voltage. This is the fastest memory kit I’ve ever had on my test bench. Users who don’t like to tweak settings and want to get right down to business will appreciate the Viper’s EPP 2.0 ability to hit its rated speed within seconds with maximum stability. And when a product provides this level of performance at almost half the price of its competitors, its hard to overlook.
