Like all RAM kits, the Viper RGB comes in a simple insert. The design is colorful and adds a lot to the concept of shelf appeal. I wouldn’t call the packaging damage proof, but RAM kits seem to avoid shipping damage in general. The box might not help with online shopping, but Viper did a great job nonetheless.
Viper RGB Closer Look
At first glance, the kit appears to be rather plain. The white shroud doesn’t stand out and the black logo can seem a bit plain. The space for the light bar is pretty clear, but the RAM isn’t trying to be impressive merely through heat sink design. This will become pretty apparent soon enough. The design does appear simple, but I think that’s pretty intentional as well.
What was interesting about The Viper RGB was how light it felt. While specifications state that the heat sink is made out of aluminum, it almost has a plastic type feel. The good news is that in spite of this, the kit doesn’t feel like it will bend or fall apart when being pushed into a socket. DDR4 has pretty low temperatures and we’ll find out soon enough if we can find some additional overclocking headroom.
