TEAMGROUP T-Force Xcalibur RGB Review

👤by Vortez Reviews Comments 📅25-07-18

System builders have now come to appreciate that it isn’t only about performance figures – aesthetics and visual appearance play a key role in building any system nowadays and for those seeking to home in on another flashy RGB product, Xcalibur does a superb job.

Although we had a few minor hiccups installing the Blitz software, once set up we were able to enjoy a vast selection of animation effects and customization. As can be seen in our demonstration earlier in this review, the results are great – enhancing the overall appearance of any system. Furthermore, all of the major motherboard partner RGB technologies are also supported too. This covers ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync and ASRock Polychrome Sync.

It isn’t just about styling, DRAM obviously has a practical purpose and in the performance department this kit doesn’t disappoint either. Tapping into 3600MHz and CL18 allowed for some decent, reliable results in a range of different scenarios. If fast memory is what you’re seeking, this kit is ideal since it arrives in either 3600MHz or 4000MHz and all that’s needed to get the memory running at these speeds is to enable XMP inside the BIOS.

Overclocking wasn’t as easy as it has been in the past – we were only able to nudge up the frequency to 3800MHz (just an additional 200MHz). As we discovered, even with a subtle modification to the speed, there are benefits to be had. If outright performance is important, then we suggest opting for the 4000MHz kit.

The kit we’ve looked at today (16GB 3600MHz) arrives with a price-tag of £218 GBP - $233 USD - $350 AUD. This seems to be in-line with other kits from rival brands offering the same capacity/speed, so we’re pleased to see TEAM being competitive with this product.

Not only does Xcalibur RGB offer up stunning lighting effects, this kit arrives with high frequencies out of the box and this in turn delivers good overall performance.
