With many of us still stuck at home for, reasons, several people have turned to PC gaming to help soak up some of their free time. AMD is killing it in the CPU department, Nvidia is close to dropping their next-gen and memory prices are way down. So really, there couldn’t be a better time to build. But deciding what parts to pick can be a bit overwhelming, especially to a newcomer to PC building on a tight budget. For me, I just want a solid product from a company with a good reputation.
Team Group has been in business since 1997. However, they’ve really been making a name for themselves lately with their T-Force Gaming line up. Team Group does all their own research and development in house. This helps to keep production costs down which helps the consumer in the end. Over the past few years, I’ve used several Team Group products including SSDs, SD Cards, and memory. So, when we were offered their T-Force Dark Z DDR4 3600 MHz kit to review, I was excited to see how it performed. We ran the T-Force Dark Z 3600 MHz kit through our suite of memory benchmarks. So, let’s see how it did.

The Dark Z DDR4 memory comes is a standard clamshell style package. The T-Force logo is displayed on the top left-hand corner. To the right is the Dark Z product branding. On the bottom right-hand corner is a label that tells you exactly what kit you are getting. In the case of our sample, it was DDR4 3600 MHz with a CAS Latency of 18
On the back of the package, you’ll find the T-Force logo, with a brief description of what the logo stands for. At the bottom, you’ll once again find the Dark Z branding, with a list of some of the main features of the Dark Z DDR4 memory.
