Default 32GB 1600MHz vs 16GB 2400MHz

I have

2 x 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 (1.5v), and
2 x 8GB 2400MHz DDR3 (1.65v)

I can either put all four of them together, and get 32GB at 1600MHz, or I can use the 16GB at 2400Mhz keeping the 1600MHz as spare.

Any advantage for either options? Any opinions on which config should I keep?

I also read recently the opinions are swinging from "RAM speed doesn't matter" to "RAM speed matters for newer games", which might be a reason to .

Is there any benefit to 32GB over 16GB if I don't make use of it directly - e.g. the may be OS optimizes or caches more?

I mostly use the computer to play games (Windows 10) as the most demanding task. I also use the computer occasionally for development of codes sometimes.

Speed only matters in games which are likely to run into a CPU limit. ARMA is a good example.
