Great price, but fair warning the reviews make it seem like you can't use two kits of 2x8GB at the same time.
Sure but the random company is the one that provides warranty if needed, and I have no experience with them is what I meant. People buy name brand ram (Kingston, Corsair, etc) for the support they can provide, not because they use different colored heat sinks.
Almost all (not 100% ) of DRAM chips are made by the top 3 that is true. But there is more to a DIMM than just a DRAM. The quality of the DIMM materials, its design the manufacturing quality control will all matter and impact the quality of the DIMMs.
DIMMs are a simple commodity and one of the only ways to compete is cutting cost in production and design and one of the only ways to do those is by cutting corners.
And I'm not just speulating here, this is actually stuff I've heard straight from the horses mouth talking to actual engineer at DIMM producers in the course of my career.

Most of the time I imagine most people will be OK with any random generic DIMM. But some of the time generic DIMMs will be DOA. Worse, some of the time generic DIMMs will have low performance problems from marginal design that will randomly crash your system. Memory quality problems that result in instability can be one of the worst and most elusive system problems to diagnose and resolve.

For a difference of a few dollars memory is not one compent that I personally would cheap out on with an unproven brand if the result is a higher risk of system instability. Even if money is tight, I'd really recommend going with an established name brand with a track record of quality.

Hopefully people buing these will have good luck and these Neo Forza DIMMs will establish a record of quality and they'll turn out to be OK purchase. But then they'll probably jack their prices...

You realize the guts in all memory are made by either Samsung micron and hynix right? The exterior cooling fins and RGB lighting vomit can be made by any random company

You may well be right.

However seems to me this happened a lot more in the past than it does now. The technology is so advanced that the ways to make things cheaply and thus less reliable have gone away. If you do not make it well it will not work at all most of the time.

I will keep the 8GB I have and put it back in if I have problems. My system will not support faster RAM anyway. That is mostly where you run into problems. When you are testing the limits of technology.

If I had a system where I bought the Motherboard I would never use this. Most likely also I would not use it in a gaming Desktop.

Most of them not all. Neo Forza for example uses (has used) memory chips from GoldKey also.

These have SK Hynix C Bin I believe, so they should be Ok as far as chips are concerned.

But as pointed out above there is more to it than just which memory chip is in it, just like not all PCs are alike because they use Intel or AMD CPUs and chipsets.

Within these manufacturers, there are various dies with different performance ratios with tiered pricing. A stick manufacturer chooses the lowest bin that will pass their required performance. Some manufacturers will have better margins for variability than others affecting reliability over a large batch. Some will try to time the lower bin chips to its limits to make the numbers which may be affected by MB variability.

The quality of the controller, the PCB as well as the design of the heatsink for the heat output by the vendor-specific design has implications on stability and reliability.

This company isn't new. But like so many others including giants like SK Hynix don't have much of a support presence in the US. You may need to deal with Newegg for warranty.

But at this price, if they work for the first few days, you can treat them like disposables than consider them as lifetime sticks.

Just make sure you do several cycles of Memtest stress testing after installing to shake out any issues and always keep a pair of memory (even if less capacity or speed) as backup if and when any memory should fail. Just like PSUs.

Anyone who got this can report on the SPD and are the spec'ed timings stable? What does CPUZ/HwInfo report?

Are these Hynix CJR? There are reports that they overclock well.
