Anyone tested Patriot Vipers with 1155 Asus boards?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Sold off one of my 8 GB kits of G.Skill to a friend and grabbed a set of:

Patriot Viper Xtreme Series 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz CL8 DIMMs (PXQ316G1600LLQK)

Timings on the kit at stock at 8-9-8-24 (only CL8 kit I've seen in 16GB)

I was able to pick the kit up on a supplier promo for $45 so it was hard to resist (kit sells for about $100 usually).

I'm well aware of the arguments surrounding the benefit (or lack of) 16GB kits provide but this was literally cheaper than my current 8 GB kit (a set of CL8 G.Skills). Using the Asus P8Z68-V Pro.


I haven't seen any reviews on the kit nor is it on Asus QVL list for my board. The description indicates it is designed specifically for the X79 boards.

They are rated at 1.65V (as opposed to the standard 1.5v for the 1155 boards).


Any suggestions as to whether these will be worth keeping?

They'll be fine to use on 1155. Just don't expect to overclock them.

You'll probably have to up the VCCA on your board by 2-3 increments too to support 16GB too.

Personally I'd try running them at 9-9-9-27 timings and lower the voltage to 1.6v.

Kind of defeats the purpose of low latency ram then. I have a kit of G.Skill 16GB that runs at 1.5V with similar timings. They don't overclock well though.

If you want to overclock RAM 16gb isn't the best route to take. Something like 2 x 2gb would be great, 2x4GB is ok too. For 1155 you want the dimms to run stock at 1.2-1.35v, this is what will give you the overclocking headroom you need.

Dimms that require 1.65v have no head room for OC as 1.58v (let's say 1.6v) is the Intel "max recommended" voltage for 1155 to avoid potential damage to the IMC in the long run.

Regarding the kit you have now - it's a great 16GB kit, running them at their rated frequency, timings and voltage is ok. You won't notice any "real world" performance increase by overclocking them anyway so unless you were planning on folding or benching with the kit, they're worth keeping.
