Team Group's Quick Memory: T-Force Xtreem DDR4-4300 / DDR4-4500 CL18

Team Group has introduced its new dual-channel DDR4 memory kits for overclockers – the new T-Force Xtreem kits operate at 4300 MT/s and 4500 MT/s data transfer rates.

Team Group’s latest T-Force Xtreem DDR4-4300 and DDR4-4500 dual-channel kits feature a 16 GB capacity (8 GB × 2), CL18 20-20-44 timings, and 1.45 V supply. The modules use specially-designed 10-layer PCBs as well as cherry-picked Samsung’s 8 Gb B-die DRAM chips that can run at extreme speeds. The voltages are a step above the standard 1.4 V for high-end kits.

As usual, the high-performance memory modules support XMP 2.0 SPD profiles for easier setup of DRAM sub-timings. Furthermore, to ensure efficient cooling for DDR4 chips and grant its modules a unique look, Team Group equips its T-Force Xtreem DIMMs with aluminum heat spreaders.

The key advantage of the new T-Force Xtreem DDR4-4300 and DDR4-4500 dual-channel kits versus their competitors from other makers available today are their CL18 timings. By contrast, DRAM module suppliers usually set CL19 timings on everything higher than DDR4-4000, So these kits should have an advantage.

Team Group does not mention which motherboards are verified with its T-Force Xtreem DDR4-4300 and DDR4-4500 modules, but typically companies like this validate their top-of-the-range offerings with Intel’s latest platforms and the high-end motherboards. Therefore, expect the new dual-channel kits to be compatible with Intel’s Coffee Lake/Z300-series platforms, but in order to run them at their maximum speeds one would require a motherboard with a quality memory controller.

Team Group is expected to start selling its T-Force Xtreem DDR4-4300 and DDR4-4500 dual-channel kits shortly at MSRPs of $325 and $389 respectively.
