BSOD Different Code Every Time, 2 Different Ram Kits

Hey All,

I think I might have made a mistake. I was running great with my single kit of 16GB dual channel G.Skill 3000MHz ram. However, I wanted an upgrade. So I bought a kit of 16GB dual channel Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 ram. Now I am getting a BSOD right after logging into windows when using the XMP profile. It set the timings to 15-16-16-35, Voltage to 1.35, and speed to 2933MHz. If I set everything to auto, it all works fine, but I am stuck to 2134MHz. Is there something I am doing wrong, do these kits not work well together?

Computer Specs:
Ryzen 7 1700x
Asrock B350 Pro4
16GB G.Skill Ripjaw V 3000
16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000

  1. mixing and matching ram is always a crapshoot. it will either work, not boot at all , or be very unstable like in your case. this is why they sell ram in kits of 2-4 sticks

    So should I return the new Corsair ram and buy the another kit of the G.Skill ram?

    if your goal with the new kit was to get 32GB of ram then it would be recommended to return the 16GB kit and put the money refunded toward a 32GB kit
