I have found that not all memory plays "nicely" well together....especially when using different vendors. I'd suggest returning the memory and try a different vendor.

You should be sure you are installing memory in appropriate matching slots. Each manufacturer is a bit different in how more memory should be added and where memory must be placed within the slots. You'll have to consult the vendor documentation.

You do not say, but I assume that all the memory is ECC. Mixing ECC and non-ECC has been problematic for me.

On some systems BIOS modifications need to be made for any memory enhancement.
