psu :TT 500w

Kingston as well as other memory manufacturers won't guarantee that the use of multiple kits of memory will be compatible together. You are free to do your own compatibility testing with no guarantees.

Workarounds to get extra memory to work include:
lower memory clock speed
relax DRAM timings
increase DRAM voltage

ok so i want to lower my memory speed but how low should i go
 
Max supported (non-OC) RAM speed for Ryzen 1600 is 2666MHz, so that's what the OPs RAM would run at without any intervention.

My vote is still that there's a bad stick. That's not uncommon.
