2 x 12 GB in a Triple Channel motherboard is not a good idea

Get two times this kit

If you can't resume from sleep, its not because of your Ram, its because of your hard drives thats doesnt support sleep mode.

Your Ram will be able to run at 2000Mhz if you make a good overclock and you test everything afterward, your CPU and Mobo are gonna support it.

For a full guide on how to fix your sleep mode problem

Try to turn off the hard drive just to give it a try. If it's not working, just put back the settings to default.

But maybe its not a hard drive issue
