This is just an "okay" memory kit. It (mostly) works at its rated speed and timings on both AMD (Ryzen) and Intel systems, but it's more fashion over function (the kit I have has RGB lighting - not sure why I bought it). Mine happens to use Micron ICs (specifically, part number MT40A1G8WE-083E:B, which is the B-die version). It doesn't overclock worth a crap and doesn't scale with voltage. In fact, it hates additional voltage and anything over 1.3V simply won't work (lots of errors, BSODs, if it even boots). The best overclock I can seem to get, which isn't always entirely stable, is 2733 MT/s (on my test bench - can't remember timings). I'll link to my run with an AMD Ryzen 7 1700 and Asus ROG Strix X370-F Gaming below.
