So my current PC has 8GB of ram so i decided to upgrade to 16gb. Once they arrived i took out the old ram and installed the new ones in the same spot as the old ones - 1 and 3. and the computer started to boot and stopped and started until a few tries when it worked - this was only on the first boot, however my PC ran into two errors that required a restart? and then the ram speeds said each slot was 2133 not 3200 so i tried fixing that but ultimately didn't know how . anyway later on my games started to crash constantly so i went back and tried to boot the PC with only one of the new sticks and the same thing happened. So i installed the old sticks again and the computer booted up fine?

Specs:
CPU: Ryzen 5 1500x
MB: Asus Prime B350M-A
old Ram: Kingston KHX2400C15D4
new ram: G.skill ripjaws V 16gb 3200mhz cl16 ddr4
