I didn't know a whole lot about this company before I bought this RAM. I was trying to get some Team group RAM on Black Friday, but they were out of stock and this was one of my alternatives. After checking a couple reviews and researching the general reliability, I decided to give it a shot- mainly because it was within my budget, was 3,000mhz speed, and was apparently 'Ryzen Approved'. It was also RGB, which was an unexpected bonus for this price range.
Having used it, I have to say it's great. The XMP profile for the 3,000mhz overclock loaded without a hitch and the RGB looks fantastic. The heat spreaders for the modules are pretty tall, though, so you may want to check clearances first. I almost didn't have enough room for my top-mounted AIO radiator with this modules, but it just barely fit with less than a mm left.
I tried overclocking it to 3,200mhz just to see if it would take and it didn't. 3,133mhz seemed pretty stable, but didn't show much of a performance increase, so I just set it back to the 3,000mhz profile. I'm not going to knock a star off for this though, because the modules are rated for 3,000mhz, not 3,200mhz, so they do exactly what they're advertised to do.
Also, the RGB lighting synced up perfectly with the RGB Fusion software on my motherboard and was easily controllable. If you don't have any sort of software to control them with, they do a simple smooth color cycle that I find pretty tasteful.
Overall, for $105 I think these are a really good value.

perfect, rgb syncs with motherboard too, only complaint is that the heat spreaders are kind of cheaply made out of plastic, but its hard to tell in my case, oced to 3400 MHz stable.
