Hi y’all,

so i just bought corsair 3200mhz 8gbx2 sticks and my pc will boot up, but it shows in the bios that total memory is 8192MB. I can totally see that, both of those sticks are showing up on the screen on bios, but it tells me that only 8gb are in use. Plus it shows me that those sticks are 2133 and in the windows it showing me that the one stick what is in use is 3200Mhz. I wish I could send you a pic but unfortunately I cant. I hope you understand what i’m trying to say.

My specs:
GTX 1080
I7 7700K
Asus rog strix z270f
650w seasonic gold

I have tried so many things but they wont work. Should I take 1 16gb stick 3200 mhz or try 3000mhz with two sticks. The 2 sticks would be risky, cuz if they wont work then I have to go change it again. And the store is like 1h there 1h back.
