Simple, classy, and clean aesthetics Reliable company Small enough that you could easily fit most (if not all) air coolers, especially noctua ones
I think the ripjaws logo looks a bit tacky, but I can't see it when its installed
Obviously you will need to enable XMP on your motherboard to get 3600mhz, but it is something you could figure out and do in 20 seconds so its no hassle. Overall I'm happy with my kit, it looks clean and performs great, and I can still run something like an NH u12s cooler and it doesn't even get close to touching it.

Originally was running at 2133MHz but after using xmp, it went to the advertised speed of 3600MHz.
Go for it, just make sure your processor & motherboard support 3600MHz and wont crash. I have a Ryzen 5 3600 / B450 Tomahawk Combo.

After enabling XMP and manually setting it to 3600Mhz, benchmarks are recognizing it as 3600. Timings import correctly with XMP. Mounting height of the heatsinks actually fits under the fins all the way to slot 1 on my old trusty Noctua NH-D14 with the AM4 mounting kit for my Ryzen build, although the install of the two sticks had them sitting in slots 2 and 4.
After all the praise about plug & play install, this registered as 2133 Mhz with my Ryzen 3800x / MSI MEG X570 Unify with the latest BIOS and had to manually set it after 2 reboots to figure out what it wasn't picking up properly. Zero noticeable difference over my T-Force VulcanZ DDR4-3000 CL16-18-18-38 after it was running at correct speeds. Looks cheap in comparison to the rest of my build as well, mostly because of the sticker. Several runs of userbenchmark and it's only putting me in the 47th percentile for this particular kit, which if you're not a math whiz means below average performance.
If you're putting this in your brand new build and had nothing previous to compare it to than your old DDR3 build, I'm sure you'll be really happy with it. I think I'll just be returning this for now. If the 32gb 2x16 kit drops in price I might give it a go but otherwise it's a waste of $130 over what I already had. On the plus side, my 3800x benched at 99.7% over and over and over again (using the T-Force) and it did get 99.4% one run with the G.Skill after I set the ram to run at 3600 Mhz, although it only achieved 87% when it was running it at 2133 Mhz.
