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.

DDR4-4133 CL18 18-18-38 1.4 V ?
DDR4-4300 CL18 20-20-44 1.45 V 2×8 GB 16 GB

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.

    Sounds like an infection of "courage".

    You can't honestly expect them to proofread marketing materials or have the knowledge base necessary to understand where the memory controller resides can you? That's asking a lot from someone that's just a tech journalist.

    Team Group Xtreem "8Pack Edition" 32GB (4x8GB) DDR4 PC4-32000C18 4000MHz Quad Channel Kit Review.

    My motherboard is ASUS Maximus IX Hero, CPU Intel Core i7-7700k.

    The memory doesn't pass POST when all 4 dimms are installed, ASUS Q-Code error 55 and 49. Some 2 dimms work well, some don’t. Spent 6 hours trying to make 4 dimms work by tweaking BIOS settings without any luck. This memory seems incompatible with my system.

    On the other hand, I installed 4x8GB dimms of G.Skill Trident Z 4000MHz into the same system and it works well out of the box. Hence, my system is capable of handling 4 sticks of ddr4-4000MHz.
