from completed build My First 1080p Gaming PC ( Ryzen 5 1600x, GTX 1060 6GB, 16GB Ram)
It was the cheapest 16gb kit available with 3000MHz, and G.Skill is a respectable brand so I decided to buy it. It's great for my Ryzen 5 1600x, after enabling the XMP profile it's running on 2933MHz.

Ugly imo, but got a great deal on them. Runs quick and low latency with an XMP profile.

This was the cheapest ram I could buy... hopefully I can figure out how to get proper performance out of it with my motherboard but I may have hooped myself on that one by not researching hard enough. I'm not giving it a great rating because G.Skill literally put crappy shiny stickers on it... for god knows what reason.... and they are already coming off.... wish there was proper heatsinks or something on them.

Good memory. Shipped as a 2133 kit but goes to the advertised speed once you enable the XMP profile in the BIOS.

from completed build "Mini" ITX Build - Ryzen / RTX 2060
I was worried because the QVL for these cheaper sticks of RAM (compared to corsair, RBG, etc.) didn't supposedly support AMD, but recent updates on the part of the mobo manufacturer/AMD have eliminated this issue and I had no problems getting these to run at their advertised settings using AMD's equivalent to XMP in the Bios settings.
Memtest also found no issues with these sticks and I am very satisfied. Fancy looking RGB isn't worth the additional $40 cost.

from completed build Esteban's ITX Elite 130 - Ryzen 5 build
Not a good-looking memory kit. Then again, is the cheapest DDR4-3000 kit around and, for budget builds in cases with no windows or tempered glass panels, is excellent and quite reliable.

RAM is RAM but fast RAM is even better, especially for Ryzen. Overclocked it to 3200mhz without any issues. Kind of mad that I didn't realize the sticks don't have heatsinks on them for both practical and aesthetic purposes but I can't see the RAM from the outside so it doesn't really matter.
