Prices of basic DDR3 memories have fallen down quickly in the past half-year. Nowdays you can get a 2x2GB 1333MHz dualchannel kit for less than 35€ from local store. Today we will take a look at Patriot G2 DDR3 1600MHz 2x2GB kit and see what extras you you can get out of it if you’re willing to spend couple more coins over the basic model. Let’s have a look!

Inside we find the modules packed in a plastic container. The modules have small heatspreaders to help with cooling the modules and even the heatbalance between the chips. Patriot G2-series is specced for 9-9-9-24 latencies at 1600MHz. This is a bit faster than the cheapest DDR3 modules available, but not as fast as the highend CL8 modules available from multiple manufacturers. You’ll see that the front side of the spreader has the G2-logo alongside with Patriot’s companylogo in it. The other side has a sticker with basic information such as; cache latencies, memory speed, and module size. There’s also an installation guide for installing the modules, something I’ve not seen in ages with memory modules.

    Funny I feel like I’m the only person in the world with these. Trying to find tweaking advice was hard when I bought them. Deleted my bios settings by accident and now I find myself starting all over again. This is one of the very few references I have ever found to them.
