Based on our results and findings, we do not recommend the XTREEM ARGB WHITE 2x16GB DDR4-3600MHz CL14 memory kit for Z390/i9-9900K users since the one-click 3600MHz CL14 XMP profile doesn’t work out of the box or through any manual custom overclock we tried on our Z390 platform using what we consider to be a safe voltage.
We consider this XTREEM ARGB WHITE 2x16GB kit manually overclocked to 3200MHz (CL14-15-15-35 @ 1.450V) a good replacement for our HyperX Predator 2x16GB DDR4-3333 CL16 kit due to its better memory latency, its similar overall gaming performance, its premium quality build, and its stunning design and excellent ARGB features.
All in all, we feel that it would be unfair to give the XTEEM ARGB 2x16GB DDR4-3600MHz CL14 a final verdict based on our Z390 CPU testing alone. In fact, based on TeamGroup’s testing and data, these modules at 3600MHz XMP or higher OC frequencies are designed for newer CPU platforms, and we have no data on these testing scenarios.
