Patriot eXtreme vs G.Skill HZ

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just was wondering what is everyone's thought on these two products. Is the patriot line any good, how will they compare to the g.skill when OC. Basically I didn't want to get something that won't hold it's own when overclocked. I am looking to save a couple of dollars and this seems like the parts I could do it on.

Patriot eXtreme Performance 2GB (2x1.0GB) $88.99 w/ a $50 MIR

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) HZs $109.99 :/

Thanks in advance

Pros: I have purchased Patriot Memory three times. This was the last purchase, around 3 months ago when it cost nearly two and a half Ben Franklins. All of the Patriot memory modules that I have purchased have run well without any problems, including these. I am able to OC to 1000MHz, stable 5-5-5-12 or use at 800 4-4-4-12.
From what i hear, no voltage increase, so at aroound 2.2v on the patriots.

Pros: I have been using this memory kit for over a month now. I have overclock this memmory to 1100 at 2.35V
on the g.skills

Verdict? I say get the patriots. Cheaper, and same chips, and if you increase the voltage, im preety sure you may be able to squeeze the same amount out of them. remember, nothing is garanteed with either sticks...

I would go with the g.skill hz. Also it has nothing to do with the fact that I own a set of HZ's either, though they have performed flawlessly so far, D9's are D9's no matter whose PCB they are attached to. But MIRs are a huge hassle and in most cases the removal of the UPC code (always needed to submit an MIR) voids the warranty.
