Pros: works just fine right out of the package. No tweaking settings, adjustments etc.. Just make sure to reset bios to defaults before attempting to install these.
Single rank modules for those of you who care about that.
Cons: SK Hynix memory chips are used on these.
Overall Review: If you have been through the memory nightmares I have experience as an early Ryzen adopter, this memory is a Godsend. G.Skill sets them up with automatic profile so you can just install and they work. Bear in mind, these are not blazing fast, but they do work properly. 2400mhz is fine for most folks. Yes, 3200 or higher would be really snazzy, but it is more trouble than it is worth on these new motherboards. Once the firmware pushes come out in a few months you might get higher speeds working reliably, in the meantime, save a few bucks and throw a set of these in.
Here are the automatic timings these loaded up with.
They will run as DDR4-2400 (1200 mhz) @ 1.2 volts
Mine were SK Hynix chips , DRAM stepping 00h
@ 1200 MHz 16-16-16-39 (CL-RCD-RP-RAS) / 55-421-313-193-6-4-7-26 (RC-RFC1-RFC2-RFC4-RRDL-RRDS-CCDL-FAW)
Pros: Worked with the 2700x on an x470 Taichi board
Got it to run at 2666Mhz without changing the voltage which was nice as no extra heat is really added while running slightly faster. Haven't bother to run it faster because the gain of going 2400 to 2666 wasn't much to begin with, except in 3D modeling, which it already does well enough.
Cons: None, does what it says on the tin
Overall Review: It's overall a nice kit and you aren't paying for a heat spreader that really doesn't affect performance. I picked it because gains from faster RAM on Ryzen wasn't worth paying the extra cost for Ram at the time. The modules for the QVL for my motherboard placed a 3200Mhz kit at $410 and this was $269, $140 isn't worth a possible 5%-7% boost in performance in some applications.

Pros: Low profile (compared w/ high heat sink units that get in the way of your CPU cool).
Cons: Really, no cons.
Overall Review: Next build I'm going faster.
Pros: works flawlessly
Cons: people who write bad reviews because they do not know what they are doing.
Pros: As you expect from G-Skill, it just plain works without headaches.
Overall Review: I did an all-out build with a Threadripper 1950x, Asrock Taichi x399, an AMD WX7100 GPU, etc.,. The GPU used 1 core and 30 threads were running work on the other 15 cores. This maxed out the 16 GB I had installed, leaving a few threads "waiting for memory". I put in another 16 GB and a second GPU and have no problems. It's just my opinion, but unless you're maxing it out like my build, 16 GB is more than enough, and easier on your bank account.
Pros: - Reasonably priced for 16GB, plus I snagged a promo!
- Works really well with my ASRock AB350 Pro4 motherboard (it's on the QVL list)
- Well packaged
Cons: - As mentioned in other reviews, no heatsink, just a sticker. Ok for me because I'm not planning to OC.
Pros: Works with finicky Ryzen rigs.
Cons: What looks like heat spreaders in the picture are actually just ... stickers.
Overall Review: I spent a fair amount of time searching Newegg for memory modules listed in the motherboard manual's compatibility chart (that were in stock and not horrifically overpriced). This was the best choice.
Pros: Paired perfectly with my Ryzen 5 1600 and MSI Tomahawk. BIOS that was installed on mainboard saw it right away. I still flashed a newer BIOS but not because of the RAM.
Cons: The logo is a sticker, not a silkscreen process on a shell. Who cares?
