I gave this 3 out of 5 stars mainly due to the cost. Unfortunately I decided to build a new PC during the GPU and Memory cost crisis.
If I could I would return this for non-RGB sticks to save a little bit of cash since the Dark Rock Pro 4 covers it. Unfortunately I bought the memory initially planning to use an AIO cooler and I felt returning it to Newegg would have been a hassle and I'd lose money doing so.
- 3200MHz CL14
- XMP worked out of the box with my setup
- Large profile so double check if it will fit large air coolers. Luckily for me it works with the Dark Rock Pro 4

tfw your ram costs more than your motherboard
This was a splurge and definitely not the "price-to-performance" option, but damn they are pretty and the CAS latency of 14-14-14-34 is hard to argue with. I do wish the lighting control software was better, because right now I can't control the RAM lighting independently from the Asus AURA motherboard lighting.

Looks great, runs great, definitely not for everyone but if RGB is what you want, the Trident Z RGB is the best option for RAM.

Fast, expensive and beautiful. Runs at 3200MHz using the XMP profile. Samsung B-die, so Im sure it overclocks very well. Works with Asus Aura Sync- plug and play.

Aesthetic AF. Great speeds as well. I just kinda wish they had a 16GB option for a single channel.

I lucked out and was able to nab two of these kits when they dropped down from ~$240 each during a near black Friday sale. I was just going to get one set, and I don't really need 32GB right now... but let's be honest, I let my compulsion to have all 4 DIMM slots filled with RGB goodness get the better of me. It's Samsung B-die memory, and so plays wonderfully with Ryzen. Running the XMP profile 3200MHz at CAS 14 no problem, and with only 0.900V on the CPU SoC. There are some considerations with the lighting control software (G.Skill's cut down version of Asus Aura doesn't play well running simultaneously with any other lighting control apps), but for now I'm just using the real Asus Aura Sync software for the RAM and setting the motherboard LEDs via UEFI. Works fine for now. Four stars simply because it's so expensive.

Paid way more than I wanted on this kit, but so far it has been worth it.
