A Closer Look
Patriot’s Viper memory kits always use similar packaging with a large clear window showing off one stick inside. Kit capacity and speed are listed in the top left corner.
There is a blurb about the Blackout memory family in several languages on the rear of the package.
Inside are two sticks and the typical Viper Gaming Logo sticker.
As the name implies, the Blackout memory modules are dressed entirely in black with the Viper logo gracing the center of each module in matte black paint.
One side of each module has a rather large sticker over the Viper logo indicating the part number, UPC barcode, and specs such as capacity and speed.
The top edge of each module has a ridge of heatsink fins to help keep each module cool.
