Are you saying that you're trying to add two 8 GB modules of DDR3-1866 memory to your existing two 2 GB modules of DDR3-2133 memory?

 

Also, what motherboard are you working with? I am assuming that your sig rig is outdated.

Either run the two 8GB modules of DDR3-1866, or the two 2GB modules of DDR3-2133; you can't do both.

Then what you're asking this board to do and what you're asking these memory modules to do is a bit of a challenge. You should probably first remove the DDR3-1866 memory modules and then turn the computer back on and downclock the DDR3-2133 memory to 1866, and then manually set its timings and voltage to match that of your new DDR3-1866 kit. Then you can turn the computer back off, put the DDR3-1866 memory back in, turn the computer on and see if it works. If not, then we'll keep working at it until it does.

 

To be honest though, I think the solution is going to be to get rid of the DDR3-2133 memory altogether. I mean, you don't really need 20 GB of memory. 16 GB is way more than enough.

The good news is, generally for most people the difference between 16 and 20 GB would be unnoticeable unless you were already coming close to using 16 GB. Therefore, if the difference is unnoticeable, it's not enough to be considered a sacrifice. It's more of an upgrade - out with the old, in with the new.
