from completed build My Gaming Dream :)
It's not this memory's fault because it was made for Intel systems, and XMP is by Intel. So these xtreme memory profiles is supported by some AMD boards, but not by all. So on all Ryzen boards, the highest that anyone has been ever to get these sticks to run is 2999Mhz. Some say its because they don't have Samsung ICs and other technical crap. Long story short, if you want memory that runs at its rated speed on Ryzen motherboards, then you need to check the QVL (Qualified Vendor List). There's no other way around it, and this is the only and biggest problem with Ryzen. You can't just go shopping for memory online and expect whatever you buy to work as advertised. Ryzen is not insert and play friendly with memory.
Anyways, the memory looks super sexy even if it is one color. It's a red LED light, and the only think you can customize is the lighting effects. Strobe, breathing, bla bla.
