MSI z77a gd65 installing extra RAM

Hi, I wanted to up my RAM form 8G to 16G so I bought the identical RAM sticks (g.skill RIP JAWS gaming series) and my motherboard (MSI z77a gd65) has 4 RAM slots. I figured I would just be able to plug them in and go but that isn't the case. I was wondering if somebody could help me out. I haven't tried overclocking my computer yet because its not set up properly for that. I was wondering if motherboard can only operate on 4 RAM sticks if overclocked as well.

    First, make sure each kit is installed in the same color slots.

    What model is your RAM? Manually set the DRAM Frequency, timings, and voltage in BIOS/EFI.

    Test and see how that works. Hopefully the two kits can be used in the same system.

    Thank you
