I have had this issue where my windows constantly crashed and so I ended up completely reinstalling Windows 10 to try fix the errors I've been getting. A few of these BSOD errors are as follows:

1)CRITCAL PROCESS DIED
2)PAGE FAULT IN NONPAGED AREA
3)SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED
4)MEMORY_MANAGEMENT
5)KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED

After reinstalling Windows I have mainly been getting errors 1,2 and 4. I managed to somewhat fix not being able to get into windows by removing one of my memory sticks (I have 2 Corsair LPX 16gb @2667MHz). I have tried switching memory sticks to see if one of them was faulty but both would work if they were by themselves. I tried putting them in every combination I could think of, A2/B1 , A1/A2, A1/B2. I can't figure out what the problem could be, I tried disabling and enabling X-AMP and that didnt do anything, I even tried under and overclocking the sticks but nothing worked.

TLDR: Can only get into Windows when one stick of ram is in and not when two are plugged in.
SPECS:
Mobo: MSI B450-A Pro (MS-7B86)
CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
RAM: 16GB @2667 mhz
GPU: GTX 1060
Windows 10

That memory pair, which I expect is CMK16GX4M2A2666C16, is not in the supported list (QVL) for Summit Ridge CPUs according to MSI, although similar models at different speeds are.

Corsair lists them as compatible with Intel 100,200, and 300 boards.

Will they run as a pair at 2133 or 2400MHz? Or perhaps with 1.35V rather than 1.2V?
