Review: Team Zeus 8GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9 & Team Xtreem 8GB DDR3 2800MHz CL12

Team Zeus 8GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9

Last year in September Team Group launched the Zeus memory kits, a series targeted at consumers willing to experiment with memory overclocking but who don’t want (or lack the means) to invest
in high-end memory, certified to run at high frequencies by default. Initially, only the 1600MHz CL9 kit was made available, but in the meantime the 2133MHz CL11 kit and 2600Mhz CL11 kits became available as well. All models can be ordered in a range of 3 colours: red, blue and yellow.

The package is a transparent blister embedded in cardboard that’s printed with the kit’s specifications. The modules are covered with a simple aluminium heat spreader sporting a red colour theme, perfect for use with motherboards that employ a similar colour scheme (ASUS ROG, ASRock Fatal1ty, GIGABYTE Gaming G1, MSI Gaming).

Because all the models of this series are based on the same chips, and because we like entry-level products that offer spectacular boosts in performance, we chose to test our luck with the 2 x 4GB kit rated for 1600MHz with 9-9-9-24 timings.
