I was happy with the overall results of the T-Force Dark Z memory. The T-Force Dark Z DDR4 3600 MHz memory kit not only performed well, but overclocked well to 3866 MHz from its stock of 3600 MHz with only a slight bump in voltage from 1.35 to 1.38 volts. I could have possibly pushed it further if I dumped more voltage into it, but it was very stable with the overclock I settled with. Running at 3866 MHz, we ran the memory stability test in Intel’s XTU for well over 30 minutes with no issues. Given the scored did go up with the memory overclocked, the timings did as well. The timings on this memory already aren’t the greatest at 18-22-22-42. But when overclocked, the timings went to 20-24-24-45.
Although RGB lighting has grown on me, I’m happy we can still buy solid memory, without RGB lighting. The Dark Z memory looks great in a gray and fits well into almost any build. However, if you’re not a fan of the gray color, the Dark Z memory also comes in red, which also looks good. But with all that, one of the biggest benefits of the Dark Z memory is the price. At the time of this review, you can pick up a kit of the T-Force Dark Z DDR4 3600 MHz memory for only $64.99 on Amazon. Considering that comparable kits go for upwards of $89.99 depending on the brand and whether or not it has RGB lighting, I’d say $64.99 is a great price for 16 GB of ram. So, if you’re a gamer on a budget, a 16 GB kit of T-Force Dark Z DDR4 3600 MHz memory is a great option. Thinkcomputers gives the 16 GB kit of T-Force Dark Z DDR4 3600 MHz memory an 8 out of 10 score.
- Good Performance
- Low Cost
- Good Overclock
- No RGB Lighting
