Hello. I purchased a 12 gb Kingston triple channel set to add to my original 6gb ocz set for my x58 build. Both sets are ddr3 1600. My pc will not boot with both sets installed, but each set works individually. Any idea what's wrong.

Thanks

Re-seat the RAM sticks, and remove one to see if it works, and than another, and ... till it will boot.

Or u can try just the Kingston alone.

Is it possible that the Kingston Due to there larger capacity require more voltage? Do you have a link to the product page?

Also sometimes with more sticks of memory you need a slight voltage boost or even vtt boost

So you want 18gb of ram in your Pc? I would just use the 12gb set , you can't possibly use more than that.

The two RAM kits are probably incompatible. Also if you have windows 7 home premium then you can't use more than 16GB of RAM. That isn't a reason for the computer not to work but if the computer did work and you have home premium only 16GB would be accessible.

Why couldn't someone possibly use more than 12GB of RAM?

RAMDisc is one idea...

I tried each set individually and each set works alone.
Here are the sets that i'm trying to combine.


What about to run only Kingston, did it run?

O, I see that u did.

You do not have identical sets of ram there one has the timings of 8-8-8-24 and the other has 9-9-9-27 , so thats why they are not working together the timings have to be the same.

Ok, I didn't know that the timings had to be identical. Oh well I guess i'll just use the Kingston set, 12gb is plenty. Thanks guys
