Final Thoughts and Conclusion
Overall, the T-Force Vulcan Z DDR4 3200 MHz kit we tested in this review was a solid kit of memory. I’m pleased to see companies still making memory without RGB lighting. Not only am I not the biggest fan of RGB lighting, but the lack of lighting on the PCB helps to keep the cost down a bit. This makes the Vulcan Z DDR4 memory perfect for the enthusiast on a budget. I am also a fan of the neutral color of the heat spreader on the kit we received. However, it’s not the only option, which is another plus. The heat spreader design is simple, yet attractive and far better than other budget memory, some that don’t even have a heat spreader.
On XMP Profile #1, the Vulcan Z memory performed pretty well. It even did alright while overclocking. The base speed of 3200 MHz was pushed to 3600 MHz with ease. We were able to push it past 3600 MHz, to 3733 MHz. However, set at 3733 MHz in the bios produced a speed of 3466 MHz according to CPUz. That being said, our sample kit of Vulcan Z memory seemed to do better at stock in a few of our tests, such as ROG Realbench and 7-Zip. I thought this may have been a fluke, but even running at 3400 MHz, our Vulcan Z memory had better test results at stock speeds. That being said, the majority of our readers won’t bother with memory overclocking, so I can’t hold that against the kit. Especially since at the time of this review, you can get the same 16 GB kit of Team Group’s T-Force Vulcan Z DDR4 3200 MHz memory for only $67.99 on Amazon. If you’re okay running 2666 MHz memory, you can get a 16 GB kit for as low as $59.99. Team Group’s Vulcan Z DDR4 memory a great deal, especially when looking at gigabytes per dollar, or even price to performance. So, take a look at the T-Force Vulcan Z DDR4 memory. It’s perfect for a home theater PC or a gamer on a budget!
