Patriot Viper Series Tri Channel DDR3 PC3 10666 3x2 GB Review

Posted on Monday, December 22 2008 @ 14:20:08 CET by

With stock latencies at 9-9-9-24, I had to find out just how tight the timings would go at the factory default voltages. By manually adjusting the timings and setting the voltage to the 1.5 volt JEDEC spec voltage the modules easily ran timings equal to the Qimonda 3x1GB set. To get the modules higher, I just kept increasing the bclock frequency upward until the system would not boot. I then adjusted the timings and voltage of the modules and pushed further until I finally hit the wall at a 209 bclock frequency. Adjusting the voltage up to 1.7 volts did not allow for an increase any higher without failing memtest. Since the timings were loose at the low end, I kept the timings at the defaults for overclocking since additional voltage did not allow for any tightening of the latencies. All said and done, an increase of 169MHz on the memory without a severe increase in the supply voltage to the DIMMs should offer a nice performance boost for real world applications and gaming.
