Unlike our neighbors down south, everyone knows the Canadian military consists of only about three people: The guy who appears on TV all the time, the security guard who eats donuts while watching hockey, and the janitor who cleans the washroom. A couple of months ago, our family visited Ottawa -- and being the capital city of Canada, it probably does not come as a surprise to you it is filled with lots of government buildings. Upon leaving the beautiful city on a bright Sunday afternoon, we went to a local gas station to fill up our rental car. Unfortunately, the local gas station's washroom is out of order, so my cousin and I went across the street, and spotted an entrance next to a convenience store. We went inside, and asked the security guard if we could borrow the washroom. He quietly mentioned that they don't normally let people in, but he escorted us to the door labeled "Men's" anyway. We were a bit curious about why he said this, so before after we left through the exit, we glanced back, and noticed we have just done some 'business' at what is called the Constitution Building -- a building that belongs to the Government of Canada's Department of National Defense. Oops. At this point, you may be thinking to yourself, "That's nice to know. But what does that have to do with anything?" My answer is, to be honest, "Not a whole lot". The only reason why this incident came to mind is due to a long series of random associations in my mind, originating from the name of the RAM we are reviewing today. To not waste any more of your time, here's the $1,000,000 question: How well does the Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 2 PC3-15000 2x4GB, a product from our fellow American neighbors, step up against the competition? With popular entries from Taiwan, other American manufacturers, and nothing from Canada, read on to find out what we have found!
