With room for overclocking
To immediately give away one of the best things about Patriot’s Viper Xtreme 5 DDR5-8000 kit, you can grab the 32GB kit for $330. For that price you get 38-48-48-84 2T times, and it will only need 1.45V, not low enough for AMD but closer than some kits. If that’s not enough to make you consider purchasing this kit for your Intel system, TweakTown was able to drop the CL to 36 while staying at DDR5-8000when they left the timing alone, they might push the frequency to DDR5-8267.
High-frequency DDR5 doesn’t have a huge effect on gaming performance, but there are some applications that love the extra frequency. At this price point, it makes sense to pick up the Viper Xtreme 5 DDR5-8000 kit instead of a similarly priced lower frequency kit.
