You can add 2 sticks extra in case they are fully identical, I did that to my system, FURY Beast 16gb 8x2, added extra 8x2 and all fine. Upon purchasing I made sure they all identical. (Although some people reported stability issue when using 4 dual channel sticks.)

So, about your rams, look at the back of the sticks, it says like ver. and stuffs, basically that indicates the modules inside those heatsinks. Are they similar? If not, you may run into some problem.

You may have a couple kit with single rank module, and another pair with dual rank, that will cause a mess.

If all rams are identical, then perhaps it's best for you to just reset your bios / cmos battery. BIOS today's easy to configure, so...

Keep us updated.
