We managed to overclock the memory modules to DDR4-4266 @ 1.45V. I just bumped up the speed and increased the DRAM voltage. Simple!
Verdict and Conclusion
These memory modules are a bunch of only a few, that could run at DDR4-4000 straight out of the box. Insert them in to the DIMM slots of a compatible motherboard, go to the BIOS, and just select/enable XMP and that’s it!
The overall performance of the TeamGroup T-Force XCalibur RGB DDR4-4000 memory kits were very good indeed. I got some insane scores during our AIDA 64 memory benchmark.
People always ask me whether faster memory speeds matter, or rather … does it improve performance? Well, the simple answer is yes. If you have a high-end enthusiast motherboard that supports higher memory speeds and XMP, and you pair it with DDR4-3200 ram or above … you will see some sort of performance increase.
For overclocking, they weren’t too bad. I was able to take them up to DDR4-4266 with a simple voltage increase. All settings were left on AUTO.
The unique totem designs is really nice, while the ultra-wide 120° angle RGB lighting can make any system look great. It’s compatible with all major synchronization standards, which includes T-FORCE BLITZ (beta version), ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE’s RGB Fusion, MSI’s Mystic Light Sync and ASRock’s Polychrome Sync.
There is only one thing TeamGroup could have improved on … and that’s the memory timings, which currently at 18-20-20-44.
