Question My New Ram is completely dysfunctional. HELP PLEASE

May 29, 2020
I bought new ram for my pc (two sticks of DDR4 8gb 3000), it is perfectly functional with my motherboard and is secure in their slots matched for dual channeling yet it doesn’t work whatsoever. My games run worse than they did with my singular 8gb of ram. I’ve had so many problems and I don’t know what to do. My cpu usuage is at 100% when I open up games and I disabled almost all background processes as well as only have discord and the game running when I play. I have a cpu good enough to run the game as well as a good graphics card , i don’t know what to do help please.
