Combining 2 quad channel RAM kits of different size and different revision type.

Hi there, I'm on the x299 (Asus Prime-A 2017) intel based platform with an i7 8720x and I am looking to upgrade RAM, going from 32GB to 96GB. I currently have installed CMD32GX4M4B3200C16 but I can't find an identical kit. For that reason I consider buying CMD64GX4M4C3200C16.

 

Would that setup work fine or not?

when you use sticks from different kits, you have no guarantee that they will be the exact same chips, same revision, same timings.. so there is no way to know if XMP will work at all.

But in general, the chances of getting the advertised speed are very slim.
