T-FORCE BLITZ FAQ
Q1. When installing Blitz, the screen will show unknown publish from the UAC window, Should I continue to install? Would it be damaged to the computer?
If the reminder is showing during installation, please click Yes to go in the process, when finishing the installation, execute the T-FORCE BLITZ, the screen will show the publisher/issuer is TEAMGROUP Inc., this will not cause any damage to your Computer. If you still have more concern about this issue, please go to customer service from TEAMGROUP Inc. official website, leave your personal contact information, the specialist will contact you as soon as possible.
Q2. When installing T-FORCE BLITZ after download, why I getting the error message, error execution without response or the software User interface is not T-FORCE BLITZ?
If you install several RGB control applications, this would cause conflict or interference; we highly recommend that you only install one application only to avoid the modules are not recognized.
Q3. Why are the modules always back to the default state which cannot restore the effects I set after I shut down the computer or restart the operating system?
After your computer has booted into the operating system, your RGB setting effect will be able to display. Other than under the operating system, the RGB effect will be displayed as a default setting or no color changed.
Q4. Is there any other languages for installation of Blitz?
T-FORCE BLITZ only supports Traditional Chinese and English language.
WHAT IS S.M.A.R.T? DO SSD DRIVES SUPPORT S.M.A.R.T?
S.M.A.R.T refers to Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology, which is a built-in monitoring function of SSDs and hard drives. This technology allows users to monitor the health and status of their devices, and performance monitoring and control using software specifically designed for S.M.A.R.T. functionality. All Teamgroup SSDs support S.M.A.R.T.
WHAT IS TRIM?
TRIM is a system command. The Win7 operating system would notify SSD of data blocks that will no longer be used and may be erased to release space. This function, which is similar to garbage collection, is executed in idle time to optimize performance.
WHAT IS WEAR-LEVELING?
Due to limitations in data writing/erasing times of the Flash memory, SSD firmware is designed with wear-leveling technology so as to extend product life and service time. Also referred to as storage block writing/erasing leveling, the wear conditions of each block are leveled equally for the optimal extension of product life to meet system requirements.
WHY CAN'T I TRANSFER A 4GB OR LARGER FILE TO MY SSD?
If you want to copy a single file larger than 4GB to SSD, Please format the SSD to NTFS format.
(Path: My Computer>Right click on the SSD->Select the Format option on the function menu>Select the NTFS from the File System item>Press Start button).

WHAT IS SSD?
SSD is an abbreviation for solid state disk. The conventional hard disk does not belong to “liquid” hard disk; solid state disk refers generally to solid state disk composed of NAND Flash. It has no mechanical structure and performs transfer via electronic signal compared to rotational disk design used in conventional hard disks. It utilizes characteristics of conventional NAND Flash and is composed of control unit and storage unit (FLASH chip). Data storage is achieved by the combination of the two units. Data is read and written in block writing and erasing manners. Thus, the efficiency of reading and writing relies on the design with respect to read-write technologies very much. It is advantageous of high speed, low power consumption, vibration resistance, high stability, low-temperature resistance etc.compared to current conventional hard disks.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SSD AND HDD?
SSD V.S HDD:
High speed, low power consumption, good durability, zero noise and resistance to low temperature.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SATAII AND SATAIII?
Both are the same with respect to appearance and installation. Joints and wires are the same, too.
The difference lies in the maximum data transfer rate.
WHY THERE IS DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACTUAL CAPACITY AND MARKED CAPACITY OF SSD?
This is due to a unit capacity conversion issue. Hardware manufacturers usually define 1K=1000 bytes according to decimal, while software providers (ex: Microsoft) define 1K=1024 bytes according to binary.
In addition manufactures retain 3~5% of capacity for firmware, application software, and data storage maintenance. So there is a difference between actual capacity and marked capacity.
WHAT TO DO IF SSD (SOLID SATE DRIVE) IS DETECTED CORRECTLY BY THE COMPUTER, BUT IS NOT DISPLAYED ON “MY COMPUTER” FOLDER?
For such situation, duplication of drive letter with another disk device might occur. This problem may be addressed by changing the drive letter of SSD.
1. Click “Start” key on the bottom left corner of the screen.
2. Click “Do”.
3. Enter diskmgmt. MSc, followed by pressing “OK”.
4. Click SSD with the right key, followed by selecting “Change Drive Letter or Path”.
5. Click “Edit”.
6. Reassign available drive letter for SSD.
7. Click “OK”.
ERROR MESSAGE OCCURS WHEN I TRY TO ENTER WINDOWS 7 AFTER I CHANGE THE SATA MODE FROM IDE TO SATA.
This issue occurs if the disk driver in Windows 7 or Windows Vista is disabled. This driver must be enabled before you change the SATA/RAID mode of the boot drive. Please visit Microsoft website: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/922976
HOW CAN I ENSURE THAT MEMORY MODULES ARE WORKING WITH BIOS SETTINGS ON WINDOWS XP SYSTEM?
With the help of some software tools, you can detect memory settings from Windows XP. These may include the CPU-Z, SiSoft Sandra and EVEREST. In addition, SiSoft Sandra and EVEREST are equipped with the efficiency verification solution to further validate whether or not the performance based on the SPD settings is achieved.
HOW MUCH RAM DO I NEED FOR MY PC? IS IT THE MORE THE BETTER?
This question depends on the computer user you are, what programs you plan on running on the computer, and how many programs you have open at a given time.
Common games、audio and video playback:8GB
Hardcore user、advanced digital image processing:16GB or more
WHAT IS THE EPP TECHNOLOGY?
When users wish to over-clock the memory module, they must manually adjust relevant parameters, such as clock speed, working voltage, CL, tRCD, tRP and tRAS from the BIOS. Therefore, unless the user has rich overclocking experience, he will need to try different combinations in order to find out the best settings for the module to display its optimal performance. Therefore, it is time- and labor consuming, especially to beginners.
As a solution, NVIDIA extended the SPD by adding more parameter combinations to the unused space, about 29 bytes, in conventional SPD. As long as the supported motherboards are used, the BIOS can automatically detect the optimal module settings to easily release the performance of modules. This feature is called the EPP, Enhanced Performance Profiles.
ARE DDR3 AND DDR4 MEMORIES COMPATIBLE?
DDR3 and DDR4 are not compatible because they are different in both pin count, arrangement, and signal definitions. In addition, locations of fool-proof notches on the golden fingers are different, so both are not compatible.
IS THERE ANYTHING TO BE NOTED IN MEMORY INSTALLATION? IS THERE SETTINGS AFTER INSTALLATION?
Refer to the user manual of the motherboard. The additional setting is unnecessary because BIOS on the motherboard would detect SPD parameters on Memory Modules automatically after the memory has been installed.
