I would like to state this is not a paid review.
Team Group T–Force Vulcan 16GB 3000MHz CL16 DDR4 Memory Review.
A little About Team Group As a Company.
MEMORY OF A LIFETIME.
Team Group Inc. possesses professional research and development capabilities, high quality products, rapid productivity.
A tightknit global sales network and complete customer services.
In addition to ranking among Commonwealth Magazine’s top 1000 enterprises, it has also become one of the fastest growing 3C product manufacturer and a world’s leading brand in recent years.
I would like to start firstly by introducing Team Groups new.
T–FORCE GAMING Series product line.
Which completely cover all of your Memory needs, from the understated yet capable (T–Force Vulcan).
To the absolute insane speeds of the T-Force Xtreem with frequencies all the way up to 4000MHz.
The very Same Ram modules that were the first to go over the 5000MHz mark!.
This shows Team Groups commitment, not only to bringing us high Quality Ram modules but to also continue pushing innovation in the Memory Market.
Another stand out product from Team Groups T-Force Gaming line is the (Night Hawk RGB) the can be found in Black and White Variants witch are of course fully (Asus Aura certified).
I highly recommend you checkout Salazar Studios YouTube channel, His coverage of Computex is second to none, in the coverage he features the Full product line and more, the full T-Force Gaming Product line currently consist of the following Kits.
T–Force XTREEM DDR4:

Here for Review today, we have a set of TeamGroups T-Force Vulcan DDR4 Ram.
With there low profile mono chrome Deign, in both Grey&Balck, these would sit well in almost any PC.
They pick up the Test Rigs RGB lighting amazingly well again due to that Silver/Grey Colour the Heat spreaders are coated in.
Each module has a full Aluminium Heat–sink covering the PCB/Memory Modules.
The Heat–sinks themselves are extremely Low profile,
another reason I would have absolutely no worries recommending them for any system configuration, they would be compatible with the Largest CPU Air Coolers, or smallest form factor systems due to that low Profile Design.
There were many issues at the Launch of RYZEN with Memory Compatibility.
The Team Group T–Force Vulcan since day one have been Running rock solid without a single issue.
They are easy enough to both set up & Overclock.
Simply by selecting the Standard DOCP Profile in the Bios of the ROG Crosshair VI Hero, then the desired Speeds for me which were or either 2933MHz or 3200MHz.
With the price of both Ram and SSDs going up steadily in 2017 these really do offer brilliant value for money.
They Can be found (16GB Set are just £109.99) (@OverclockersUK).
Considering you will be able to clock then to or beyond 3200MHz on both AMD and intel Platforms witch is a huge plus.
There understated Design, ease of use, Performance, I be happy more than happy to use these in any future project or recommend them to anyone no matter there budget.
Benchmark Results: (@Stock 3000MHz) & (Overclocked@3200MHz).
Please note! Only the frequency were changed to achieve the speed during the benchmarking If you were to alter Timings/Voltages better Speeds/Performance could be achieved.

(Id like to quickly state for the Overclocked Results, all that was needed to achieve each of the Gains in Both memory Bandwidth and Latency was to simply select the 3200MHz speed in the Bios no voltage or timing tweaks were made).
This could not be a standard Review/Compare as it is the first Memory Review I have documented.
The review is looking more at the T–Force Vulcans Performance on (AM4/Ryzen).
I of course had to researched how the same kit performed on a Intel Platform, i'm happy to report its preforming just as well if not better on this AM4 System.
For me the Team Group T-Force Vulcan was a joe to work with It is as Ram should be, install setup and forget, I did have a few
worries before installing the in the System.
(Again being down to AMDs new AM4 Platform @Launch).
As many will know at the Launch the AMD,s new AM4 Platform had teething issues Memory wise. my worries were quickly gone as they ran perfectly from the minute I installed them. there wasn't a single issue when pairing them with either the (R7 1800X) or (ROG Crosshair VI Hero).
For Overclocking as stated above all that was needed to achieve the 3200MHz speeds was to enable to Enable Standard DOCP
Profile in the Bios, Select the Desired speeds save and reboot, When you consider the problems at launch with Ryzen and
Memory that was a refreshing thing to find out, not only are these compatible with Both AMD and Intel systems, they Overclock
extremely easily to.
Setting just the higher frequency alone netted us Gains in all test performed in Both single and multi Core Performance.
Which can be seen clearly in the Results.
They have and will continue to Run our Test Rig I personally like the understated Design, and rock solid stability.
The use of Quality components is a sure sign of there (@TEAM GROUP BRANDING).
(09/10) From us here @ BuGGzLuVa–GAMINGPC–TECH.
Awesome Job Again by all the guys over @TEAM GROUP..
