Closer Look

The Team Delta DDR4 memory is somewhat a low-profile memory module with the LED bar sticking out.

Here’s a comparison of the Delta DDR4 with Kingston’s HyperX Predator DDR4.

Configuring the BIOS

Setting up the BIOS was a breeze using the BIOS of my Gigabyte G170X Gaming 6 motherboard. Just head on to the Memory settings and set the Extreme Memory Profile to ‘Profile 1’ wherein the Delta DDR4 memory will be configured to run at 3000Mhz.

Now let’s move on with the test and benchmarks.

 

AIDA64 Engineer Edition

About this benchmark

AIDA64 Engineer has a hardware detection engine unrivaled in its class. It provides detailed information about installed software and offers diagnostic functions and support for overclocking. As it is monitoring sensors in real time, it can gather accurate voltage, temperature and fan speed readings, while its diagnostic functions help detect and prevent hardware issues. It also offers a couple of benchmarks for measuring the performance of individual hardware components or the whole system. It is compatible with all 32-bit and 64-bit Windows editions, including Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.

Memory Latency

It’s quite clear that the Team Delta DDR4 3000Mhz memory kit performs almost close to the Corsair Vengeance LED DDR4 3200Mhz memory Heath reviewed a few days ago based on AIDA64 Engineer Edition benchmarks that is. Let us proceed with the rest of the benchmarks and test results.

 

Passmark Performance Test – Memory Mark (Threaded)

About this benchmark

Fast, easy to use, PC speed testing and benchmarking. PassMark PerformanceTest ™ allows you to objectively benchmark a PC using a variety of different speed tests and compare the results to other computers.

On this benchmark, the Team Delta DDR4 3000Mhz 16GB kit seems to be on par with the 3000Mhz kit from G.SKILL.

 

SiSoft Sandra

About this benchmark

SiSoftware Sandra provides a robust package of diagnostic tools for testing your system and teasing out its problems–or potential headaches.

 

7-Zip

About this benchmark

This form allows you to measure the performance of your computer.The benchmark shows a rating in MIPS (million instructions per second). The rating value is calculated from the measured speed, and it is normalized with results of Intel Core 2 CPU with multi-threading option switched off. So if you have modern CPU from Intel or AMD, rating values in single-thread mode must be close to real CPU frequency. There are two tests, compression with LZMA method and decompression with LZMA method. Once the total passes reaches 100, the score is taken.

 

Super Pi Modded 1.5

About this benchmark

In August 1995, the calculation of pi up to 4,294,960,000 decimal digits was succeeded by using a supercomputer at the University of Tokyo. The program was written by D.Takahashi in collaboration with Dr.Y.Kanada at the computer center. This record should be the current world record. (Details are shown in the windows help.) This record-breaking program was ported to personal computer environment such as Windows NT and Windows 95. In order to calculate 33.55 million digits, it takes within 3 days with a Pentium 90 MHz, 40 MB main memory and 340 MB available storage.

Fritz Chess

About this benchmark

Fritz Chess is a benchmark in which a fictitious game of chess is played. As each move has to be calculated by the computer, it is an excellent test of CPU muscle.

 

Overclocking

In overclocking the Team Delta DDR4 3000Mhz, I cranked the voltage from the default 1.2V to 1.32V and set the frequency to 3200Mhz which ran pretty stable. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to go higher to 3333Mhz even with 1.4V so I had to stick there. Results are pretty significant with AIDA64 Engineer particularly with latency.

 

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

The Team Delta DDR4 3000Mhz memory kit really placed Team Group back on the map when it comes to gaming themed hardware. Performance-wise, it is up to par or even better when compared to other 3000Mhz memory kits from other brands. The kit got a full 10 days of a mixture of gaming, office tasks and media tasks and never got a single problem with it. As far as compatibility is concerned with my Gigabyte board, it works perfectly. Overclocking only took me up to 3200Mhz, not really that good when it comes to overclocking but that doesn’t really matter much in gaming which this kit is marketed for.

Aesthetics is one of the highlights of the Team Delta DDR4 memory kits. There are three LED lighting color options; red, blue and white. We got the 3000Mhz red LED variant. As for frequencies, Team Group offers the Delta DDR4 at 2400Mhz, 3000Mhz and 3200Mhz kits. The LED lighting effect come in a breathing mode. Given that most motherboards and even graphics cards come with LED lighting today, pairing it up with the Team Delta DDR4 LED-lighted memory kit would be a great addition. You can find the 2400Mhz 16GB kit at Newegg for $63.99.
