Default Bad ram upgrade

I Have recently purchased corsair vengeance RAM.
When i pared this ram with already installed another same pair ram ,Every time windows OS start to crash and games and other software also crashes after 5 to 15 min.
I have tested this ram with memtest86 software and then it shows so many errors . When i remove this ram my pc runs without any crashing of freezing.

Test ne new kit individually and if you get any errors module for module, to see if one of them is defective.

Otherwise it might be a compatibility issue between the two kits. Even if they share the same model number, mixing kits is not recommended in general. If the ICs used on them are different, that can also further reduce the chance of them working together at spec. You can verify the ICs with the Corsair version number on the heatspreaders.

Compatibility issue. Experience this problem also and found out mixing of RAM is not a good idea.

Yep, don't mix different kits with each other. Try and return your recently bought kit and buy a fully new one with desired memory capacity and sell the old kit.

try running passmark memtest 86 as opposed to the windows built in program as this is a very good program to identify problems as the new ram may be faulty ive just had 2 sets of faulty ram myself corsair reliability do sent see-mas good as it once was
