Sad Old Ram New Ram Incompatable

I Had 2X4GB DDR3 1333 RAM

I Bought Another 2X4GB DDR3 1333 RAM

These two pairs seem to be at odds.

Each pair by itself woks fine, but when i put in all 4 my system keeps crashing...

I Have an Intel DH67BL Mother Board..

4 Slots for RAM..

It's never recommended to mix memory, as there's no way to guarantee compatibility.

Sorry, there is nothing else to check. Even two identical part number and version number modules can be incompatible with each other. This is why memory is sold in tested, matched sets.

You can test each stick individually to see if one is failing. But If they both pass on their own then i would return what you have if you can and purchase either a 2x8 kit or a 4x4 kit.
