The results seen in the read performance chart for AIDA64 has the XTREEM ARGB in third place using the XMP profile, only beat by the faster FURY and much faster XPG Z1. If you want a free boost of 600 MB/s, you can add some voltage and use straight 14 timings. However, getting them to 3733MHz delivered an increase of over 1900 MB/s!

Fourth is where TEAM falls in the write performance chart, where all of the 3600MHz kits except the TOUGHRAM do better. Lowering the timings delivered that same 600 MB/s advantage, and the same 1900 MB/s comes with more speed.

Topping the chart in copy performance, TEAM shows its strength again. 500 MB/s better than anything on the chart as it is, it can get better! Lowering the timings gives is a small free boost, but increasing the speed gives us nearly 1600 MB/s to enjoy.

Much like it did with the AMD test system, the XTREEM ARGB delivered the best latency again. Things can get faster when it comes to latency and overclocking, but both options are within a nanosecond of the XMP settings.

Super Pi pushed this TEAM RAM into fourth place, less than three seconds from the lead. Increasing speed reduced the time by nearly three seconds, jumping to the top, but gets another couple of tenths of a second reduction with tighter timings.

3DMark Physics scores look better in the Intel camp, with the XTREEM ARGB taking another fourth place overall. Either way, we tried to overclock the memory, we found the results took a hit, with both scores within a point of each other, yet both behind the XMP run.

PCMark 10 results slide the TEAM DDR4 down another slot this time, into fifth place, using the XMP profile. Lowering the timings gives us a loss of performance, but the 3733MHz with XMP timings rocketed to the top of the chart!

In 7-ZIP, TEAM takes another second-place finish, just over three seconds out of the lead. What is shocking are the results of the overclocked runs. There is an eleven-second advantage to lowering the timings slightly, but increasing the speed is almost twenty seconds faster than it is out of the box.

Nothing too shocking about another second-place finish, and it is only beat by something 400MHz faster than it is! Adding speed gave us another "CB," where reducing the timings meant we added lost a "CB" doing so.

Instead of a second-place like we saw on the AMD system, Handbrake testing results in a first-place finish for the TEAM XTREEM ARGB memory. Increasing speed give us slightly slower results, but we gained six seconds for every 4GB of data being transcoded.
