The “Leader EXPERT DDR5” line from T-CREATE, a sub-brand of TEAMGROUP focused on creators, has received an update. The memory modules are available in sleek black and white matte finishes, with multiple frequency options including 7200 MHz, 6800 MHz, 6400 MHz, and 6000 MHz. Not limited to the typical 2x 16GB and 2x 32GB configurations, they also offer unconventional memory sizes like 2x 24GB, 2x 48GB, catering to multimedia creators requiring high-capacity memory. In fact, they even provide a 96GB dual-channel expansion option that is perfect for these users.

Leading the Era T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 Memory Unpacking
The Leader series under the T-CREATE EXPERT brand offers a range of products including DDR5 and DDR4 memory, SSDs, and memory cards. The EXPERT DDR5 line is known for its stable operation, top-tier performance, and high-efficiency output. It’s designed to complement professional-grade computers that need extensive memory capacity, ensuring steady and trustworthy performance.
In this instance, the author unboxed a T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 6400 MHz memory kit consisting of two 16GB modules, totaling 32GB in a dual-channel configuration. This particular set is exclusively certified for Intel’s XMP 3.0 (Extreme Memory Profile) and is advertised as being compatible with Intel’s 700 and 600 series motherboards.
If you’re considering pairing this memory with an AMD Ryzen 7000 platform, note that the memory lacks AMD EXPO (Extended Profiles for Overclocking) certification. You could use it with A-XMP, but the compatibility will be dependent on the motherboard’s QVL (Qualified Vendor List) for memory. The 6000 MHz option appears to have AMD EXPO parameters, leaving the choice to gamers and consumers based on their specific needs and motherboard compatibility.
The T-CREATE and T-FORCE gaming lines, both positioned within the Creator Series, offer distinct aesthetic designs and styles. For those who prefer a departure from the usual RGB lighting effects or are seeking more refined heat sinks, the T-CREATE EXPERT Leader series offers diverse options to consider.
The white variant of the T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 features a white foundation for its heat dissipation system, accented by the T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 branding in gold lettering. The heat sink design is smooth and rounded, providing a less visually intense look. To aid in thermal management, it employs a one-piece heat sink and thermal pad.
Because the T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 memory lacks an RGB light bar, it offers greater compatibility with various cooling systems. With dimensions of 32 (H) x 133 (L) x 7 (W) mm, the memory modules are compact enough to avoid installation issues with liquid cooling systems or tower fans.
In the Taiwanese market, the T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 memory comes with a range of frequency options—7200, 6800, 6400, and 6000 MHz. The dual-channel kits are available in 2x 16 GB and 2x 32 GB configurations, as well as unconventional sizes like 2x 24 GB and 2x 48 GB. This means that if you have a 4DIMM motherboard, you can potentially expand the T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 memory capacity up to a whopping 192 GB.
T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 6400 MHz 32GB (2x16GB) memory performance test
The test was conducted on an Intel 13th-generation platform compatible with DDR5 memory and XMP 3.0 technology. The hardware setup included an MSI MEG Z690I UNIFY motherboard, updated to its latest BIOS version 7D29v1D, and an Intel Core i9 13900K processor. The T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 6400 MHz 32GB (2x16GB) memory was examined at both its preset JEDEC 4800 MHz and XMP Profile 6400 MHz settings, along with additional overclocking to assess read and write performance as well as latency.
Test Platform Specifications:
- Processor: Intel Core i9 13900K
- Cooler: MSI MAG CORELIQUID M360
- Motherboard: MSI MEG Z690I UNIFY (BIOS version: 7D29v1D)
- Memory: T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 6400 MHz 32GB (2x16GB)
- Graphics Card: MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Quick Silver 8G OC
- Operating System: Windows 11 Professional Edition 21H2
- System Disk: WD BLUE 3D NAND SATA M.2 2280 SSD 500GB
- Game Disk: Intel 670P 2TB M.2 2280 PCIe SSD (Solidigm)
- Chassis: STREACOM BC1 Benchtable V2
- Power Supply: MONTECH TITAN GOLD 1200W
- Graphics Card Driver: GeForce Game Ready 536.99
Within the BIOS of the MSI MEG Z690I UNIFY motherboard, it was observed that the T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 6400 MHz 32GB (2x16GB) memory has only a single XMP Profile option. The parameters for this XMP Profile 1 are DDR5-6400 with timings of CL 32-39-39-84 and a voltage of 1.35V. The JEDEC native frequency is set at 4800 MHz, and there is no EXPO parameter available.
CPU-Z was used to gather pertinent details about the memory modules. In the SPD (Serial Presence Detect) section, it was observed that the T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 6400 MHz 32GB (2x16GB) employs SK Hynix memory chips. Additionally, these modules are certified for Intel’s latest XMP 3.0 one-click overclocking feature.
Initial tests were conducted using the JEDEC native clock settings at DDR5-4800 MHz with CL 40-40-40-77 timings. Using AIDA64, the read and write performances measured were 76,015 MB/s and 67,715 MB/s, respectively, with a latency of 89.5 ns.
Subsequently, the XMP Profile 1 setting of DDR5-6400 was activated. AIDA64 tests showed read and write speeds elevating to 101,816 MB/s and 87,293 MB/s, respectively, while latency decreased to 66.1 ns.
Beyond the preset XMP Profile, the author attempted further overclocking through the motherboard at various frequencies: DDR5-6666, 6800, 7000, 7200, 7400, 7600, 7800, and 8000 MHz. Frequencies higher than 8200 MHz were not supported in the motherboard’s self-test program. However, the author speculates that more experienced overclockers might be able to manually adjust settings for successful booting at these higher frequencies, leaving this as an area for overclocking enthusiasts to explore further.
In the final phase, the XMP Profile 1 configuration was used to execute the AIDA64 system memory test, including a stability test under memory stress to gather temperature data. This was done on an open test platform without direct fan airflow. After 10 minutes of stress testing, the highest temperature recorded was 69.3°C.
It’s worth noting that the author used an ITX motherboard with only 2DIMM slots, resulting in the two memory modules being placed very close to each other. In typical use-case scenarios, additional airflow would usually pass over the memory modules to assist with cooling. Therefore, the temperature would likely be lower in most real-world conditions. This extreme test serves merely as a reference for enthusiasts.
The T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 6400 MHz 32GB (2x16GB) memory diverges from the current mainstream with its non-RGB, matte texture. While it may not be as visually striking as the gaming-oriented T-FORCE series, it still caters to a specific customer base that appreciates its unique aesthetic.
Despite being marketed as part of the creator series, the T-CREATE EXPERT memory showcased impressive overclocking capabilities. The memory was successfully overclocked from its base DDR5-6400 MHz to as high as DDR5-8000 MHz, exceeding the author’s expectations. Currently, the T-CREATE EXPERT DDR5 series is available for purchase. The highest frequency on offer in retail channels goes up to 7200 MHz, and there’s an option to acquire a 96GB dual-channel kit. Those interested in high-performance memory might find this product worth considering.
