Getting the GeiL EVO Spear sticks up and running was simple and painless, for the most part. I did run into some issues with running the sticks at 2933 MHz, but that's a CPU/platform problem, not one of the memory, as 3066 MHz worked with these sticks without any issues at all. The performance testing seems to reflect this issue as well, but that is really neither here nor there as we are here to talk about the GeiL EVO Spear sticks, not the AMD Ryzen platform and its on-going issues. You do need to be aware of these issues though, and I cannot find any reason to blame any memory maker for these.
These sticks really blend well into a RGB-filled rig such as my test system. The black heatsink was a great choice for looks, that's for sure.
