The first pair order were giving random Windows 10 memory errors. Amazon was terrific in replacing these in a fast and friendly manner. The second set also gave random memory errors.
Motherboards was flashed to the latest F7 bios and would report the memory as correct. Did automatic detection of modules and manual. No overclocking was utilized with the installation. However when testing with third party software for errors it was obvious that the memory was either bad or incompatible with the board. When in doubt use the free software by Memtest86. I was able to test the pair of modules (and each individually) and find several (OK, LOTS) of reported errors. This was tested on the first batch of memory and replacement.
Side Note - I did switch to another manufacture for memory and have had absolutely no issues. The memory used was Corsair Vengeance RGB 32GB (2x16GB) DDR4 3000MHz C15 Desktop Memory - Black. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074Q45BNH/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 About the same price point and even a tad bit faster. Memtest86 did not find any errors (after 8 hours of deep scanning).
Hope this helps anyone else out there looking to use this with a Z370 AORUS Gaming 7 motherboard. I'm sure these modules work with other boards but it was certainly odd getting two different batches giving the same random memory errors in Windows 10.
Prime pulled through again, with 2 day delivery on a Saturday, and at a busy time, a week after Black Friday.
I've seen better packing for ram, it was just a simple plastic clamshell, which is fine if you buy it from BestBuy etc, but not for shipping. Just came in a small padded envelope.
Quality seemed nice, heavy, slick looking. Part wise, not so sure. It overclocks pretty decently and stays relatively cool. Has some coil whine when changing the led's for some reason?
The most negative and ironic thing about this RGB Ram, is THE LACK OF RGB SOFTWARE. So far I've found 1 working, and it's the one from Ballistix, and it's god awful. The custom options are based off "time" so to change/make effects, you have to time each led to blink, and for how long etc. There are no good "wave" or "rainbow" or any of the other things you'd normally want from RGB Ram. To put more salt in the wound, you HAVE to have the software opening and running. It does not have the ability to be sent to your notification area like any other normal software, so it has to stay on your taskbar. And the coil whine makes it even more annoying, when you set up any type of flashing or effect, you get this variable pitched whine, that makes it sound like a 3D Printer. You can audibly hear it from outside the case, and even with a headset on not playing anything.
Overall, the ram is a solid 4/5 as the important things are there.
When I run Windows I don't install all that crap ware anymore, and that is the big let down here. I took a star off because of it. I do acknowledge this is a major problem with PC vendors, ticky tacky software to make hardware work. Why do I need motherboard headers for RGB if nothing uses them? This is a general critique of the industry, I've noticed that everything seems to use the USB headers and proprietary software. So a fully kitted system is going to need a funky USB hub and a task tray of half dozen running apps?
If for some reason Ballistix reads this, go back to having the ram default to showing memory activity like the original, had that been the default I wold hav put 5 stars and been very happy. White? Just plain white? Doesn't even pulse, just sits there imitating a flashlight. The sheer laziness and lack of imagination are just breathtaking. The original was fantastic because it looked cool and would instantly tell you if the PC was locked up. Cool and useful.
As I said earlier you just change one setting in the BIOS and they run at rated speed! The heat sinks look great and are not ridiculously oversized. There is a lot to like here, just disappointing if you don't happen to run Windows as your main OS or don't like annoying pieces of software in the task tray. Software is cheap, in many ways, and that is what cheapens these is the software.
UPDATE: After going through Crucial instead of Amazon I finally received a 2nd stick that actually works! As for RAM it works great! Still only giving it three stars though due to the annoyance of going through 4 sticks to finally find one that works as it should, and the annoying coil whine it makes. I also contacted Crucial about that and they said that's normal...

It is very easy to install, even if your mobo is already in the case, obviously it will depend on your own set up.
I was having trouble with BOSD in Windows 10. Everything pointed to a RAM issue, memory diagnostics test wouldn't run fully.
I've a brand new MSI Mortar mobo, Team Group ram 2 x 8GB installed just did not seem to work with mobo, may have been a compatibility issue.
Decided after many reviews to change out for this brand (2666 version).
RGB was about 10% of a deciding factor.
After fitting this new RAM, diagnostics completed fully and everything appeared to be fine.
A few runs on Sisoft Sandra and Aida64 and a few stress tests on MSI Kombuster showed that the PC was handling well and stability issues appear to be gone. No BSODs
If you have Mystic Light it may interfere with Ballistix own program.
At least under Mystic Light you can (sometimes) get the MSI mobo and Ballistix RAM to sync.
I have noticed that sometimes there is a lag between both RAM sticks when the LEDs are perfoming whichever pattern that is selected...but as long as my system is up, running and stable, the light show can take a back seat.
Money's worth? Similar kits for similar price, cheaper kits, more expensive kits.
I can't test them all...happy, so far, with what I have just bought.
I will tinker with the settings as I progress into trying to overclock the system (Ryzen 2600x) and report back with any issues encountered.
As RGB RAM I have many issues. The software crashes regularly, I can only open it once per session then I have to restart my computer and the lights get stuck after a short while. The MOD manager (RAM software) takes up near 50% CPU utilisation in 2 different backgrounds apps (around 22% each) even while crashed.
If you just want DDR4 RAM then I can recommend these at the price I payed. You never know, you might not have the problems I have had, and I've had no hard crashes due to these sticks. If you're buying them for the RGB then I'd recommend looking at Corsair Vengeance or buying some sticks that match your MB brand. The MOD software is crap and there's no syncing with the rest of your system (unless I'm missing something).
Also figured why not try overclocking it a bit - bumping the voltage to 1.4V and setting it to 3200Mhz also worked great. Haven't tested the limits of that yet but 3200Mhz seems plenty fast.
The MOD software for controlling the RAM works well enough but could be better. If you shut down the computer then it loses it's colour scheme and reverts to default on startup until you restart the MOD software. This can be automated and runs minimized so once you're into windows it can pick up your preferences. The only issue is it seems to trigger Windows User Account Control so you either need to turn UAC to it's lowest level or click on a prompt every time you start the computer. So I'll give it 4 stars. Pretty good in general though, may get another 2 sticks for 32GB at some point.
