  2. Memory manufacturers guarantee memory to be compatible in the form it is sold in and not by matching up identical part numbers.

    Since the old memory was never tested with the new memory there is no guarantee they will work together. Adding extra memory creates additional stress on the memory controller and as a result the memory may no longer be able to operate at rated specifications.

    You might try lowering the memory frequency, relaxing timings, increasing DRAM voltage.
