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

Results: Team Zeus 8GB DDR3 1600MHz CL9

We considered the default frequency of 1600MHz to be much too low for the first scenario, therefore we kept the default voltage of 1.5v and decided to find a balanced set of frequencies and timings. In the end we easily reached a frequency of 2133MHz with 11-11-11-26 1T, which is not bad at all for a kit certified for 1600MHz by default.

As for the second scenario, the maximum stable frequency we managed to get out of this kit was 2800MHz, 13-14-14-26 1T, done by raising the voltage to 1.65v. There are many memory kits on the market that promise big in terms of overclocking potential but can not reach this kind of results, especially in dual-channel mode and at a voltage of just 1.65v. A remarkable performance for our small Team Zeus kit…
