Upgraded 2011 MBPro to 16GB and it reboots when running Revit & CAD

After I installed 16GB DDR3-1600, the MBPro now much faster but i've been testing it using CAD, 3D renderers and games - and it reboots when doing higher level computations.

I pulled out the new RAM and plugged in my original RAM for testing, and works fine.

I am using a MacBookPro8,2 Early 2011 15" Core i7 (I7-2635QM) with a pair of F3-1600C10D-16GSQ.

Did I get bad RAM?
