From the manufacturer
How do I set the memory speed?
If your system supports XMP, the easiest way to optimize your Ballistix memory is to enable XMP in your system’s UEFI/BIOS. Please refer to your owner’s manual for instructions specific to your system.
Can I mix Ballistix memory with another brand of memory?
In most cases, you can mix manufacturer parts, however, all memory in the system will run at the slowest performance of the installed parts. To maximize performance, we recommend that you install your memory in matched pairs.
My Ballistix memory is not running at the rated speed. What is going on?
To optimize your Ballistix memory, you will need to enable XMP in your system’s UEFI/BIOS. Please refer to your owner’s manual for instructions specific to your system.
Will the Ballistix memory work with my CPU cooler?
Some CPU coolers will restrict access to the memory slots on certain motherboards. Our Ballistix modules vary in height, depending on the model. We highly recommend confirming the amount of space you have available.
I just installed my memory and my system will not boot. What do I do?
When a system doesn’t boot after a memory upgrade, it is usually because the memory isn’t fully pressed into the slot. For DIMM memory, press memory until the retaining clips click.

Ram almost never goes bad. If it does, the manufacturer needs to have decent support, which crucial does not. After years of using them I'm done. This experience has been nothing but trouble, a gigantic pain with no redemption.
Didn't care to get B-Die ram and this was cheaper than anything else at the time.
I am currently running this at 3200mhz, but i did having issues running the correct or a lower timing.
it wants to keep running at 18 19 19, and not 17 19 19. it defiantly does not want to run at 16 16 16 even at 3000mhz.
Maybe it just takes some more tweaking but just be aware when buying. Very nice ram never the less, good build quality and reliability ( so far )
This is fantastic RAM both for price and performance. Micron E-Die memory might be considered the best base for a RAM kit in existence if Samsung B-Die didn't exist...(and soon it won't since Samsung has ceased it's production). As of this writing I have bumped up the speed from 3200 to 3600 without changing timing or voltage and it is running stable per Memtest86. I currently have a test running with tighter timings at that speed. Everyone's experience will differ slightly, of course, but Micron RAM is very scalable, meaning as long as you're willing to put in the time to manually tune beyond XMP settings you will get far greater bang for your buck than purchasing a kit with a Hynix, Nanya, or lesser Samsung base. The timings and speed I have now are in excess of kits that cost considerably more.
For reference I have this memory paired with a Ryzen 3600 and an Asus TUF X570, so no super high end premium price parts are fueling my results here, just a little bit of time. So do the research, read reviews here, at Newegg, at tech websites, and watch some YouTube reviews from professionals. Take the time to vet your purchase. I think this kit is worth every penny and represents a much higher value proposition than buying a kit with less ability to scale or an expensive kit with already tight timings.
Some general tips for RAM beyond just this kit or manufacturer: beware of user reviews that say it isn't running at rated speed. While occasionally there may be an actual issue with the RAM, it is much more likely to be user error. Inability to find the correct setting to enable XMP or find manual timings, hardware (like some older gen cpus or motherboards) that have a hard time playing with newer parts, and especially motherboards that do not have whatever RAM kit youre looking at on their QVL are usually the culprit of memory not hitting rated speeds.
So, TLDR: this is quality memory that punches far above it's weight. Just be prepared to invest some time in pushing it higher than it's XMP rating, as speed and timings are a little lax, especially if you are running Zen 2 (Ryzen 3000 series CPUs).
EDIT: I have further slimmed the timings down to 16-17-17-17-35-58@3600mhz. Fully stable per Memtest86. Great RAM!
It's easy to configure timing and clock speed but have not tried overclocking past 3GHz. My Ryzen 2600X and Asus MB seem to be happy with these bad boys. Glad I purchased.

I've also tightened the timings to CL14 to good effect. It could probably pushed a bit further but haven't tried. A solid choice of DDR4 RAM.
Specifically chose them because this particular stick was Micron e die, and perfect for my AMD build.
I bought the 3200MHz CL16 RAM, and had no issue tightening that to CL14 at the same default voltages.
I found these through an online forum discussing AMD Ryzen, bought them immediately, and ironically got a text message from my brother 30m later linking me to the exact same product.
