Problem on first build

So I just finished my first build Mobo: b450 Tomahawk GPU: 2060 Super founders edition CPU: ryzen 2600X RAM: 4x8 Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000mhz

When I go into the BIOS it shows I have 16 GB of ram, but it detects the 4 slots and on Windows it says 32 gb but only 16 usable does anyone know what could be wrong ? Also the speed is at 2133 and setting it at 2933 nothing happens

I bought 2 (2x8) of Corsair, checking at CPU-Z it says 32 GB so I don’t know what’s wrong

try reseating ram, it might be detecting the ram but not being able to get enough connection to use it

also did you buy 2 of the same kits?
