A Closer Look
Like most of TeamGroup’s memory offerings, the Dark Z arrives in a plastic shell casing which securing holds the Dark Z modules. After opening the package in addition to the two 8GB Dark Z memory modules also included is a warranty booklet and T-Force case badge.
The Dark Z’s come with a matte grey aluminum heat sink which has some debossed areas giving it an armored look. In the center of the module is a metallic T-Force logo which is accompanied by Dark Z written in the lower right corner.
Flipping to the back of the module we find the same debossed areas from the front with the addition of a warranty sticker. Taking a closer look at the sticker we can see our modules are 8GB each with timings of CL 18-22-22-42 running at 1.35V.
Moving to the top of the Dark Z, the armored look is continued with fin-like cutouts along the top and in the center we find some subtle branding with T-FORCE written in white. Overall, I like the aesthetic TeamGroup took with the Dark Z’s and with its clean design it should easily match most build themes.
