Tried upgrading my memory

HP Recommended
Pavilion p7-1512
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Help! I am have this hp pavilion desktop that I've been slowly upgrading.. new psu, added a gpu.. have it running on 8gb ram (2x4gb) everything was running ok  but  i recently got my hands on a pair of 8gb (Dell ddr3 1333MHz P3L-10600 SNPP9RN2C/8G) but everytime i pop them in and replace the pair of 4gb ... it would not boot .. and it would make 5 long beeps.. It works fine when i put the 2x4gb back in .  ... i even took the new sticks (2x8gb) and put them in another pc and it would run ... 

is it a compatibility issue? i thought as long as its ddr3  .. any advice ?
