Patriot Viper DDR2 1150 2 X 1 Gig Kit - Patriot Viper DDR2 1150 2 X 1 Gig Kit

With DDR3 slow in gaining acceptance and the lackluster price to performance ratio more people are turning to less expensive Extreme Performance Enhanced Latency DDR 2 memory. Recently DDR2 memory has attained speeds thought impossible just a short time ago. With DDR2 speeds increasing and prices remaining reasonable it's becoming an attractive option to stick with DDR2 running at speeds of up to 1200 Mhz (PC-9600) and Latencies in the Cas 5 range. With computer accessories the highest speed of any component is usually the most expensive, many enthusiasts shoot for the next fastest speed taking advantage of the sharp price drop, then clock the less expensive component up to the speed of the more expensive counterpart. Today we are going to take a look at a 2 X 1 Gig kit of Patriot Viper DDR 2 1150 (PC-9200 5-5-5-15) which is just one step below Patriot's fastest kit (of DDR 2) which is the Viper DDR 2 1200 (PC-9600 5-5-5-12). With a little effort we are betting we can attain speeds exceeding it's more expensive cousin and attain the nirvana only afforded to those that care to venture into the realm of the Overclocker.
