@Lawnpro -- most sticks of RAM have a small SPD (Serial Presence Detect) chip, that defines the various speeds that the RAM supports, namely the rated speed (3600), plus some lower speeds, such as 2133.

 

Download, install, and run the free SPECCY software, to get the details for each stick of your RAM, and for the speed of the motherboard that drives the RAM.  

 

Maybe, one of the slower speeds of the new RAM is not 2666 ??
