RAM Sticks work alone but not together

I've tried both ram sticks on three motherboards in all configurations and they fail to post. The sticks were used 2+ years in separate computers without a problem prior to using the together.

The ram are 2x 8GiB Ballistix Sport ddr4 2400Mhz

Motherboards used: Asus z170m-Plus, ASRock z270-itx ac, GIGABYTE ga-b250m-ds3h

Were they purchase as a working dual stick kit, if not there is always a very rare chance that different RAM stick from different kits, even the same make and model will not work together (be stable).

It can happen at times however uncommon it is,try benching each stick individually to see if a single stick itself gives errors. You can try getting another stick or a dual kit to ensure that they will work together.
