RAM sticks won't work together

Hey guys, I just bought a new PC, put it all together, worked just fine, booted to windows and all. But after like an hour it started crashing (windows blue screen)

Turns out it was a RAM issue. So I started troubleshooting with my limited knowledge, but couldn't get it to work.

The thing is, both RAMs work fine individually, on either slot, so my guess is that, since they didn't come in a single package, they just simply won't work together because of different timings.

But before selling or returning anything, wanted to ask someone who knows better than me, if there could be any solution.

 

The specs are:

MOBO: ASUS Pro a320m-r wi-fi

CPU: Ryzen 5 1600AF

RAM: Geil EvoPotenza 8Gb 3000MHz CL16 (x2)

GPU: Radeon HD 6450 (not the newest, I know)

 

Thank you!

If you limit the speed to 2933, does it work?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I've tried setting it up to 2933 and 2133, and even in auto, but it's still the same.

Make sure you use the quote button so that we can see your responses.

 

I would guess that there is some small compatibility issue with the ram kit and the motherboard

Is there anything I could do to make them work? Or I should just return them?

It's not likely but some improved voltage on the ram could help. 2933 speed with something like 1.4 volts is worth a try.

Still won't work, sadly.

 

Could it be that the gpu is not compatible? Or the drivers are too old so windows crashes?

It's doubtful that the drivers or GPU are the culprit.

 

Do you have a friend who could lend you some DDR4 to test with?
