I replaced my Corsair Vengeance LPX 3200mhz 2x8GB kit with OLOY B-21 Raider 3200mhz 2x8GB kit because I was told it was a better kit and was given to me for free. They are both DDR4 and I checked XMP profiles and DDR4-3200 was selected by default with the new kit. DRAM voltage set at 1.35V. For some reason, my PC struggles to boot with this kit though. The first 2 reboots did not work (had to shut down completely to boot successfully) and then after it just couldn't get past the BIOS splash screen anymore and kept bootlooping so I reinstalled my old kit and the everything was fine. Did I just get a defective kit? My friend got it in a bundle and gave it to me so it's brand new.

Specs:

Mobo: Asrock B450m Pro4
CPU: R5 3600
GPU: RTX 3070ti
OS: Win10

Not all ram will work with all mobo's.

Check if there is a bios update for your mobo.

You can try updating the BIOS and see if that helps but the Corsair ram is sufficient so there is no need for an upgrade.

You could try putting them all into the motherboard and see if it works, sometimes mixing can work together.
