This is your CPU's memory controller that doesn't like running two separate kits together (different IC sizes doesn't help either). This is not a recommended configuration and hasn't been since the days of DDR1. This is why every memory manufacturer sells memory in pre-tested kits. Otherwise, they'd all just sell single modules and let consumers buy the @ of sticks they need.

As for them not running at 3000 MHz (one kit at a time), I'd suggest creating a support ticket. This could be an issue with the memory, or it could be just that the memory controller won't OC high enough, or other issues.
