Looks good. I'd personally suggest going with more neutral colors for your parts, and getting a cheap lighting kit, such as the Deepcool RGB350 to give it color. But if you're happy with red, I'd go for it.

G.Skill Ripjaws V Series is not described by AMD or G.Skill as Ryzen compatible.... this doesn't inherently mean it wont work, but there is a greater chance you will be stuck at 2133

What do you think I should go with then?

anything with Samsung B-die based DIMMs. (or specifically listed as ryzen compatible)

In no particular order: Kingston Fury series, Geil EVO X, G.Skill Trident Z(even the RGB version is listed as compatible, but only on asus mobos currently), G.Skill Flare, Corsair Vengeance , Corsair Dominator

(I'm sure there are others , so if there is a brand you prefer, they likely list the ryzen compatible ram on their website)
