Okay so I am very novice at this stuff but I have a Asus Prime B350-Plus motherboard and already had two Corsair 2x8Gb RAM clocked at 2400Mhz and then I decided to raise it by 16gb more so i got two more 8Gb Corsair LPX sticks clocked at 3000Mhz but every time i install them my PC won't start again. I moved them around the RAM slots and at some point i managed to make it work but the memory only showed in the total physical memory and not in the available one. Would be great to know how I can fix this. Thankss

Look in the Motherboard's User Manual.

Do two things:

1) Verify that the RAM modules are all supported by the motherboard and in the configuration being used.

2) Also check to determine if there is a requirement that the first physically installed RAM module must go into a specific RAM slot.

The motherboard's User Manual may refer you back to the manufacturer's website for more current information.

If so, then do so.

What is your Bios version ? There are numerous updates
with many improving memory compatibility.
But as SamirD said, mixing kits is never a good idea.
But, just maybe, a Bios update would allow to use your 32 Gb even at a slower speed
