With a polished silver heat spreader and a pastel RGB LED diffuser that is available in seven different colors, the PRISM II RGB kit from V-Color certainly has flair. This premium kit has the perfect sweet spot for Ryzen performance with a 3600 MHz XMP profile and is affordably priced to boot.

The diffuser color is light enough that it doesn't affect the LEDs much. The camera picks out the difference better than I do. In anything less than a bright environment (which most cases aren't) I have to get close to the sticks and squint to see which color is which when the LEDs are on.

The performance is still good for the price, and these offer a unique style. B-die would definitely offer tighter timings, but not everyone wants to mess with memory timings.

I will just leave my results here as 4200 OC looks pretty sad on this memory kit. There are some 5k results around the web. Of course, OC is also a matter of luck. Mine could run at 5000 at more relaxed timings - https://valid.x86.fr/v5e8mz
I don't know if it's the motherboard or blind trust in the mem calculator but I had similar results on ASRock, Gigabyte and ASUS boards.

Some quick runs on not the best IMC at 4800 C18 what was fully stable:
