I love this stuff. Super fast timings, B-die, and pretty cool looking. I just set the DOCP and it works perfectly. Might try overclocking.
Super fast, competitively priced, and looks great!
Thankfully, these Team Dark Pro sticks advertise right on their Newegg page that they have the Samsung b-dies in them, and the timings of these particular sticks (14-14-14-31) seem perfect for my Ryzen 7. As soon as I opened the BIOS, the sticks hit 3200MHz without me having to do anything. Mission accomplished!
Pretty awesome RAM, still playing around with the timings, but I think I can get mine up to 3466 MHz at CL15.
This memory kit uses binned, single-rank Samsung B-die ICs. I almost feel like that's all I need to say if you're at all familiar with memory specs. RAM is not just RAM, as I've seen written in so many reviews.
There is nearly an astronomical, virtually exponential, almost an order of magnitude difference between a kit of DDR4-3200 CAS Latency 14 (or 2400 MT/s CL10, 3600 MT/s CL15, 4133 MT/s CL17, 4600 MT/s CL18) and a run-of-the-mill, ho-hum kit of DDR4-2400 CL16. By the way, all those specs I just listed in parenthesis are all-but-guaranteed Samsung B-die kits. If you want to get the most out of overclocking your memory, then look for single-rank B-die.
All that being said, spending the extra money for Samsung B-die isn't really worth the typical cost differential. With CPU and platform bandwidth limitations, a ridiculously expensive kit of B-die may only net relatively small gains. It's the law of diminishing returns for computer hardware performance at it's strongest... well, aside from the exorbitantly, ludicrously priced (i.e., extremely poor value) RTX 2080 Ti, every Titan card ever produced, Intel's Core i9 Extreme series processors, etc.
Team has really hit a high mark for quality with this kit. The heat sinks are solid, heavy, and inspire confidence in their heat dissipating capabilities. Not only that, but I think they look quite nice.
If you're looking for a high-quality B-die kit that usually costs less than G.Skill's offerings, you can't go wrong with Team Dark Pro.
