Notes

We have tested from the ground-up using a fresh, up-to-date Windows build and the latest BIOS on the MSI X470 motherboard. As mentioned, the performance benefits of faster RAM can be evaluated by comparing this set to a 3,600MHz pack of the same capacity, represented by G.Skill.

Overclocking

  Max speed at 16-16-16
Max speed at 18-18-18
Max speed at 20-20-20
Team Group Phantom Gaming @ 1.45V
3,466MHz
3,600MHz
3,666MHz

We have changed the methodology and choose three selected latencies and see just how fast the modules can run before failure. It's good to see scaling goes up to 3,600MHz at reasonable timings.
