How fast is fast? That’s debatable but this is getting close to the limits of what you can do on air or without LN2. Over at TechPowerUp they reviewed a pretty fast kit. If you’re on the verge of doing a new build or just upgrading it might be worth it to check out because this kit is priced competitively priced.

Like many who enjoy seeing high performance items I usually either choke or laugh at anything with “Xtreem” in the title but maybe this one deserves it. There are also some us who like our rigs to not look like the many colors of a regurgitating Christmas tree. I am more focused on what is on the screen more than a rainbow spewing from the case but I do make exceptions around the holidays.

From TPU,

Team Group is a powerhouse within the high performance memory market. They have a wide variety of designs and consistently deliver a solidly built product. With all the hype and drive towards putting more RGB LEDs in more places, it is good to see that the T-Force brand has not excluded the section of the enthusiast community that adamantly avoids the trend.

If you have been frustrated with the proliferation of RGB LEDs into the hardware market, the T-Force Xtreem Gaming DDR4 should be a breath of fresh air. If you want high specced memory without breaking the bank, the T-Force Xtreem Gaming 4133 MHz is an excellent choice.

It seems like that the availability of DDR4 kits with speeds approaching at least some of those famous overclockers records are starting to hit the market at affordable prices. So at around $135 for 16GB I would say this is not too shabby although as a result you may find yourself tuning into some xtreme sports or stocking up on energy drinks. Be forewarned.
