Default Patriot Extreme Performance Pc3-14400 2x1gb Ddr3 Ram

When DDR3 RAM was first introduced to the public in 2007, it
did not seem to be able to capture much of the consumer and enthusiast market
alike. Well, at least that was what the forums I frequented indicated to me.
Every time a person mentioned 'DDR3' in their 'I want to build a new
computer' thread, the first reply by some enthusiast would be to suggest the
user to get a DDR2 based motherboard and corresponding RAM kits instead.
There's a good reason for this though, I won't even try to deny it -- when
DDR3 debuted in 2007, the asking price was at least $400-$600 for 2x1GB sets
-- there was a very limited amount of people that would have been willing to
spend so much money on 2GB of RAM for <5% performance gain over its DDR2
counterparts. I'm not saying such people don't exist, but as you will learn
in any microeconomics class, the demand shifts left as price increases. Fast
forward to November 2008 -- now. DDR3 RAM is much more affordable now; and
with pretty much every manufacturer offering a complete range of
value-oriented models to high performance DDR3 kits, there must be one for
you, if you really wanted to jump to the DDR3 boat. Today, we'll be taking a
look at Patriot's Extreme Performance PC3-14400 2x1GB dual channel kit. Stock
specifications at DDR3-1800 at 8-8-8-20. It's certainly isn't the best we've
seen so far. But here's one thing to note: How much do stock settings matter
with Micron's excellent D9GTS DDR3 chips used in this set? (Read:
Overclocking!) We'll find out for you today in this review. Also, pretty much
all photos in this review is 'Photoshop-enhanced' for your viewing pleasure.
