So we have already done a full review on the EXTREEM memory from T-Force, but they sent over the white version as well and we just had to take a look at them as they are just really sexy. So we got the same kit as with our previous review, so this will be more of an overview and how they look in white. So this is the 4000MHz 2x 8GB kit, timings of 18-22-22-42 running at 1.2V however they are rated for 1.35V. So specs wise the two are exactly the same. It’s just the color that changed.
So the specific kit that we have here is retailing for about $185 on amazon, now it seems that prices have become quite expensive as the ones we reviewed previously were $140. Here in SA they are R3300. But if you use our discount code WEDOTECH on Biksky.co.za you can get an additional R400 discount on the Black model not White!
T-Force got something right that not a lot of other brands do, and that’s getting that balance between the gaming look and professional look. The white ones have a more frosted look to them where the black ones were very mirror like and attracted fingerprints like flies to honey. But these white ones are simply stunning, for sure one of the best looking RAM modules out there today. And although these don’t attract finger marks that easily, TeamGroup still hooks you up with a microfiber little cloth to make them look all shiny and clean again.
Regarding the RGB they work with ASUS AURA sync, Gigabyte RGB fusion, MSI Mystic light Sync and ASrocks Polychrome RGB. So, you have multiple options for effects on the ram, you get static, pulse, flash, color cycle, the default rainbow effect and then also off. Each of the 15 LEDs are individually addressable, which makes it very easy to incorporate the ram into your color scheme. For our tests we paired it up with an Aorus Z490 Master motherboard and used their Gigabyte Fusion software..
So we have benchmarked these in the full review so we will just have a glance over them again, if you want a more in depth benchmark we suggest checking that video, linked in the description. But we can see that the EXTREEMs did quite well. Whether we down clocked them to 3000MHz or on 4000MHz they always stayed in the top 3. So we can at least say that the performance is very constant. All of the tests were done on a i9 9900KF but have heard the TForce RAM does quite a bit better on Ryzen. So we might do a comparison later on.
So in conclusion the EXTREEM modules are very good, very constant modules. They definitely look different and I love that. They aren’t so in your face with the gaming look. They have a minimalist design but still look pretty as well. T-Force did a really good job here and I must say this is one of my favorite RAM designs so far especially in the white. Fortunately for the white ones they’re not as shiny as the other ones, and I do prefer this look over the mirrored look.
But I wouldn’t go for the 4000MHz ones, I would rather get the 32GB kit at 3600MHz. The 4000MHz is more for your enthusiast or a pro E-sport player that needs every single extra frame. But the white is certainly refreshing, and I think it looks very sexy in an all white clean build.
