Turn the speed down to something reasonable and start overclocking manually. It's hard enough to get 4000mhz kits to work outside of the QVL, let alone faster. The CPU's IMC has to be just right and your board has to be just right. If the kit is mentioned in your QVL I'd RMA one or the other.
3200mhz is where ram stops showing much improvement in games with current GPUs, I'd start at 3600mhz and leave the timing loose like it would be on the current kit. Then just bump the speed until you find the last stable speed and lower the timings from there.
If you're overclocking the CPU and cache, do it before you work on the ram.
