Patriot Viper Elite 3000 MHz 16GB (2x8GB) kit


If anyone would have asked where we felt that the Viper Elite memory kit would end up compared to the competition in the beginning, we would have predicted that it would be comparable to many other premium kits at similar speeds. However, this Patriot kit was full of surprises that attest to the high levels of forethought, engineering, picking the best IC’s and quality control that makes the Viper Elite kit a force to be reckoned with. The only issue we ran into with this kit was during installation and highlights the key importance of updating your BIOS before installing memory. However once the BIOS was updated with the most current update, it booted into Windows just fine.


Overall we found the aesthetics of the kit to be very pleasing and amazing to look at through a windowed case. However, when looking at the kit more closely, we wish Patriot would have used a black PCB for this kit. The performance that this kit offered is where this kit really shines against even more costly kits; this kit has won our hearts and minds, and we highly recommend this kit for your next build. It’s so good we wish we had another one of these kits in our personal systems, so we could have 32 gigs of memory heaven.

On Amazon we found the Patriot Viper Elite 3000 MHz kit for $74.99 which makes it a very good deal, considering the performance attributes. We advise you give this memory kit a serious look if you are building a new system or just looking to upgrade your system, It delivers some serious bang for the buck. As a result of our testing we give it the legendary Golden Bear Award, which is the highest honor we can give a product.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 – AMD and Nvidia in sweet harmony

For a long time the combination Intel/Nvidia was the norm for powerful gaming laptops.  AMD has tried to break in to the market but not had much success. The laptop I am looking at today, ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15, is another challenger to the old partnership. It comes with AMD:s latest mobile part, the Ryzen 7 4800HS combined with a Nvidia RTX2060 Max-Q, all packed into a nice slim laptop with a 15" 240 Hz 1080P IPS-screen.

  1. Wow $75 for a 2x8gb kit. I would’ve killed for that recently!
