TEAM GROUP T-FORCE DELTA RGB DDR5 DESKTOP GAMING MEMORY REVIEW (6400Mhz CL40)
Summary: The Teamgroup T-Force Delta RGB DDR5 Desktop Gaming Memory provides excellent value for money for gamers on a budget.
If you’re looking to make the jump to DDR5 or needing an affordable upgrade, then Teamgroup have a great solution with their T-Force Delta RGB DDR5 Desktop Gaming Memory that in Australia can be purchased online for $175AUD (Jan 2024 – https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/memory/ddr5-desktop-memory/96941-ff3d532g6400hc40bdc01?utm_source=latestintech&utm_medium=product-review&utm_campaign=delta-d5-6400). This 2x16GB kit features 6400MHz CL40 (CAS latency) DDR5 and is available in white and black (reviewed) which offers two colour combinations to ensure the best RGB lighting in your gaming rig.
For easy of install and overclocking, it (obviously) comes with Intel XMP 3.0 support that in term adds to your overall gaming experience by tweaking the timings and frequency of your RAM to get the best performance. The T-Force Delta RGB DDR5 Desktop Gaming Memory also comes with a limited lifetime warranty for that additional peace of mind.
Aesthetically they look fantastic and according to Teamgroup they are modeled after the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit “stealth bomber” which really makes it stand out against its competitors, particularly with its 120 degrees ultra-wide RGB lighting. The DDR5 measures at 7mm (width) x 144.2 (depth) with a height of 46.1 so double check that your rig can handle it as the RAM is on the higher end.
In terms of lighting, the smart RGB IC controllers support various lighting effect software through your motherboard (e.g. GIGABYTE RGB Fusion 2.0 or ASROCK-Polychrome Sync) to create some fantastic visuals such as breathing or waves. It is further supported with an impressive PMIC cooling design and on-die ECC for system stability, including power management ICs equipped for stable efficient power usage.

Our test system included the ASRock Z790 Pro RS1 motherboard and an Intel Core i9-13900K. Once installed, we were ready to test the RAM and this was the stock settings of the T-Force Delta RGB DDR5 Desktop Gaming Memory.
CPU-Z stock settings of T-Force Delta RGB DDR5 Desktop Gaming Memory
AIDA64 reported a memory read speed of 102.39GB/s, write of 91592MB/s, copy of 92099MBs/s with a latency of 61.1ns. SANDRA 21 memory test displayed an aggregrate memory performance of 69.42GB/s, integer memory bandwidth 69.12GB/s and a floating memory bandwidth of 69.89GB/s.
What about overclocking? Mileage will vary for each user that of course is dependent on motherboard, CPU, cooling and of course RAM. Conservatively, we overclocked the T-Force Delta RGB DDR5 Desktop Gaming Memory from its base 6400Mhz setting to 6667 with no issues with system stability. Even running games such as Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Cyberpunk 2077: Phantom Liberty and Resident Evil 4. Overclocking to 6667 from 6400 saw a gain between 2 to 5% which is good and I’m sure PC enthusiasts could push this even more.
The Team Group T-Force Delta RGB DDR5 Desktop Gaming Memory 6400MHz CL40 provide excellent value for money and if you’re looking at RAM for either your 600 or 700 series systems (plus Intel 12th or 13th gen CPU’s), the memory will deliver that gaming experience for you.
