G.Skill Trident Z RGB with Ryzen? I need halp...

I have been reading that the RGB software is corrupting G.Skill Trident Z RGB Ram. And I have also been reading people are corrupting their Spd because they are using rgb software. So I was wondering, What can I do to prevent my Ram for being corrupted (except changing the colours). And is Cpu-Z fine running while the lights are on? And can I use a program that reads the spd's while another program does the same thing?
Sorry I have a lot of questions because I am a kinda new builder

    Most people including myself are just living with the rainbow effect out of the box until G.skill sort the software out properly.

    Yes it does corrupt the SPD if you try and control them with the software at the moment, but on an AM4 system it can be fixed, however the software to fix it will cost you an extra $16.

    CPU-Z will work fine and wont effect the sticks of ram at all.

    Proof, just installed the software to show you:





    EDIT: now repaired and RGB software uninstalled.

    One more question. Can I use a hardware monitoring software while the Led's are on?

    Yes, I use AIDA64 without issues, and also MSI Command centre.

    How about CpuZ Or Hwinfo?

    Yes they work fine too, I use CPU-z all the time, all the hardware monitors do is read the SPD, they dont write to it, the RGB software writes to it to change the colours, and thats what corrupts it.
