RAM is always something that is routinely forgotten along with other storage related components. All the components are important and each one cannot function with another. So, if you're building a system that is expected to be overclocked as a gaming rig, you need all of your components to be on par with one another. In other words, you can't skimp on a RAM, even though at first glance they may have the same specs. Today, we have the Patriot Intel Extreme Masters (IEM) RAM for our review. The model we have is their 16GB 2133MHz version, so this should be very fun performing an overclock on. Some of the particulars they want you to know are: Multiple speeds (1600MHz, 1866MHz, and 2133MHz) for you to choose from, Intel XMP certified, compatible with Intel 6 & 7 series, life time warranty, and is 100% hand tested and verified. Let’s take a look shall we?
