Good morning, day, afternoon, evening, or night fellow Overclockers. Today brings us another review sample from Patriot. This time in the form of one of their new DDR4 memory kits. Specifically we'll be looking at the Viper Elite 2x8GB DDR4-3000 kit. Hold on to your DIMM's, these things should be fast for sure!

Any testing done with the kit at speeds above 3333? (3400/3466/3600 ~C15/16/17?)

I had the following running per the results table:
DDR4-3467 15-15-15-35 1.35V
The AIDA bench speeds are actually in the graph at the end of the section for this particular result.

I was unsuccessful at booting 3600, though.

Thanks. I missed that 3466C15 speed... I guess my eye kept jumping between the other corresponding speeds @ 3000/3200/3333 for both C15 (1.35v) and C13 (1.45v).

Happens to the best of us LOL!

This memory based on samsung so you can put higher voltage. 1.75v is safe for them.

1.75V for DDR4? Possible, but I'm not sure I would go quite so far...

Anyway ATMINSIDE should check this memory on higer voltage. In my opinion the have good OC potential.

Those are the things we do in the benching section. This is for the general public's consumption and just like CPUs we don't recommend excessive voltages outside of the manufacturers specs. Last thing ATM wants is people frying their parts because he said they could use x.xx amount of voltage

Yes, they OC very well.
It might be "safe" for benching, but Woomack, our resident memory guru, isn't even testing DDR4 as high as you're suggesting in reviews.

Let's be honest though... benchers know there's more in the tank, enthusiasts want/need to see what's possible on voltages safe for 24/7.
