Team Group's latest RGB DDR4 design hits our test lab, the T-Force XCALIBUR RGB DDR4. This special-edition version of the T-Force XCALIBUR sticks is rated at 3600 MHz with rather loose 18-20-20-24 timings, but comes with claims of overclocking, too.

Smartarsed replies aren't appreciated ty.
Don't care. Buy me the platform to test with, and I'd have done the testing. I only have the 2200G because it was the most affordable capable AM4 chip, as stated in THAT review. Buy a motherboard capable and a CPU capable isn't a small expense. Please realize what you are asking for. I hear "spend your own money to give me what I want". Seems pretty selfish, if you ask me. Then you're telling me I'm a smart-ass. Uh-huh, that's gonna motivate me. Sure.

I don't do reviews any more anyway. What you see now was completed over a month ago. There are still more complete reviews coming that were done in July, and while it still says that I am staff here, that's someone else's laziness, not my own. I resigned from staff here effective September 1st.

As someone that DID reviews, I would have thought you would have on hand one of each platform for testing purposes, that is not selfish, it is a realistic expectation of a professional.

Good luck in your retirement from staff here.

Not really. We have a team of motherboard/CPU reviewers in different countries, not a single person. Sure, other sites use a single person, but not all, [H] has several people give opinions in their reviews as well.

No luck needed. I made sure to hire someone who is more than capable to replace me, set him up with the tools and hardware needed (which is part of why I don't have much hardware these days) and he's been doing it for many months now. My legacy will continue. :p I'm done with reviews, but I'm not going anywhere.
