T-Force Xcalibur 16 GB RGB 3600 MHz DDR4 RAM

I decided to play around with some new RGB RAM from T-Force Team Group. These apparently are guaranteed to have Samsung B-die IC memory chips. I like that they come in variations of twos and what i mean by that is the fact that you can choose from two size options (8GB or 16GB), two speed ratings (3600 MHz or 4000 MHz), two RGB exterior designs (plain or with totem designs) and two timing sets (18-20-20-44 1.35V or 18-22-22-42 1.35V). 

 

I like that futuristic/abstract SF sword look that it has so hence the name reference to the legendary tale. The heat-spreaders are from aluminium and have a solid feel regarding build quality. They are on the tall side and measure 48 mm in height at their tallest point since given their design the light-bar kind' goes down as a diagonal. 

 

Speaking of the light-bar, it is fully RGB compatible with all of the big motherboard vendors and I had no problems sync it to my board's ASUS AURA software. The light is very nicely diffused since as they claim the light-bar has a 120 degrees spread. 

 

So, I decided to OC them but unfortunately I ran into some limits since my B450 motherboard with a 2nd gen Ryzen CPU can officially work up to 3600 MHz which is exactly what these kits can do out of the box. After some fiddling with the timings, I manged to make them to boot at 3800 MHz for 1.40v but failed to perform in any benchmarks. These being said, these RAM might have extra performance that awaits to be discovered but my rig is the bottleneck in this case. So I decided to tighten the timings. I ended up having 17-19-19-44 2T but with 1.45v which is on the high side for daily use. So I must get an X570 board and a 3rd gen CPU to see how much potential is left to OC. So yeah I will get back to you on that. Here is just some quick tests I did.

Nope, it's definitely not Samsung B-die only. Maybe your sample has Samsung B-die, but Samsung B-die only kits won't have tRCD and tRP more than 1 higher than tCL/tCAS.

 

3600MHz CL18 isnt even impressive, Micron Rev E and Hynix CJR/DJR all do that easily
