Introduction

Team Group Logo

Team Group is a Taiwan-based manufacturer largely rooted in the manufacture of flash memory products. The brand is not as well known here in North America, but has been gaining a lot of ground over the past few years with its gaming-centric "T-Force" product line. T-Force offers a whole roster of gaming memory with a focus on striking designs and high performance. While most of the T-Force brand is focused on the current trend of large, bright RGB LED light bars, the brand has not forgotten the virtues of simplicity and efficiency. Thus, Team Group presents the T-Force Xtreem Gaming DDR4.

The T-Force Xtreem Gaming is Team Group's answer for those in the hardware community who have not hopped on to the RGB hype train. The Xtreem Gaming has a refined design and neutral aesthetic to match the majority of hardware combinations without being bland at all. To prove that RGB does not in fact make hardware faster, the T-Force Xtreem Gaming features high performance specs, some might even say Xtreem performance, with kits available in speeds of up to 4500 MHz (3866 MHz tested).

The T-Force Xtreem Gaming DDR4 is the type of kit many in our community have been asking for. Team Group has delivered more than a few great products through their T-Force brand; let's see if the T-Force Xtreem DDR4 Gaming lives up to the expectations of the harshest critics out there (the comments section).

Packaging


The packaging for the T-Force Xtreem Gaming is a cardboard box with a nice shot of the sticks on a slotted aluminium heat sink. "T-Force" is in the top left, and "DDR4 Xtreem Gaming" is on the top right with some award logos featured just beneath. In the bottom center is "The power from Team Group", and on the bottom right is the specs sticker.

The back of the box features the same printed background with a paragraph describing the T-Force brand on top and the T-Force Xtreem Gaming name in the middle. The bottom has a list of spec highlights.

The quality of the printing on this box is absolutely excellent. Unfortunately, the background also reminds me of a griddle, and once I saw, I couldn't un-see. Even so, I still give Team Group an A+ for the quality of the T-Force Xtreem Gaming package design.


Inside the box is a pretty standard molded plastic tray. The memory sticks are held firmly and kept quite safe from all but the most careless of handling. Along with the two 8 GB sticks, we get a small warranty sheet and "T-Force" sticker.
