There are many brands that I do not know (Solidigm for example), is it reliable in terms of quality ?

Redline ? It's not a malware ? :p
IIRC Solidigm were going to maintain Intel's Optane H series software but I think they gave up as their version was just a re-skin of the Intel version with no other changes. They are related to Sk Hynix. My stick, the P44 Pro, is the successor to the SK hynix Platinum P41. I'll let MT know if I have any issues.
Honestly the Mushkin sticks were on sale at newegg~ USD160 for 64GB Cl16 3600mhz and they look amazing. They sync perfectly with the GPU. I had Mushkin redline sticks when I was a kid (obviously w/o rgb then) , circa intel i7-2600S days.
Edit: I just checked.
Solidigm is still supporting some Intel NAND if the website it accurate.

What about Soyo have you heard? I want to get my PC with Soyo motherboard, not sure if it's good.
SOYO is owned by MaxSun and is positioned as their budget brand. Apart from decals and logo their motherboard models seem physically identical.
SOYO BIOS updates roll out slower than on the MaxSun website although they have improved in the last 2 years.
I ran that same CPU in SOYO's B660M-classic board all of last year with rock solid stability. I think of SOYO as a "strong" low budget entry.
