TeamGroup T-FORCE VULCAN TUF Gaming Alliance DDR4 Review


Now that we have got the benching out of the way, let’s see how well we can overclock the Vulcan TUF Gaming Memory. As you can see with CPU-Z, the kit runs at 3200MHz with the timings of CL16-18-18-38 under XMP-3200.

Leaving the default voltage of 1.35, I wanted to see how high the kit could overclock without needing any extra voltage. The Vulcan TUFs were able to successfully boot with 3600Mhz and ran 100% stable during a SuperPi 32M run. We attempted to boot at 3800MHz, but it failed and we had to manually set the voltage to 1.40v to get a successful boot. We did attempt to clock them at a higher frequency and tighten the timings but failed at both with any voltage thrown at it. Just to make sure we were running stable, I did another SuperPi run which completed without a hitch.

Now that we have a stable overclock, let’s compare stock setting with our new clock of 3800MHz. As you can see, we have an increase in Read/Write/Copy of 15-19% as we went from 46.2/46.0/39.6 to 53.4/54.8/47.4 GB/s. We also had a latency of 51.1ns and moved to an extremely fast 46.8ns.

I was quite impressed with how well the Vulcan TUF Gaming Memory overclocked and it seems there’s a lot of untapped potential even at the stock voltage.
