Thumbs up Mixing Vengeance 4GB and 8GB sticks

Hi everyone,
seeking some help,
i have a Sniper G1 Sniper 3 Rev1 board and am running at CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9 4GB x 2 without any problem but i thought to upgrade some additional ram and bought the CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9, however when i plug all 4 sticks of ram and tried to boot, the system refused to boot.
Seeking kind advise on how to make all 4 sticks play nice.
Thank you.

The issue you are experiencing is a compatibility problem between the two different kits. Unfortunately there isn't going to be a way for you to make both kits work together and should process a return with the retailer. It is our recommendation to purchase a single kit of memory at the capacity and speed you wish to have that is listed as compatible with your motherboard's memory QVL.
