So I bought the CMK32GX4M4B3200C16 4x8GB 3200mhz DDR4 kit in June 2017. I sold off two sticks of it since I only needed 16gb of RAM at the time. Now I want 32.

 

Can I just buy the CMK16GX4M2B3200C16 kit to fill up my DIMMs? It's on sale for a good price.

 

MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon, Ryzen 7 1700 btw.

Not recommended.

 

Even if you got the same part number and revision number as your current sticks, they have not been tested to work together so you are taking chances they will not play nice with each other.

 

Always recommended to buy memory in matched/tested kits.

As mentioned already. Memory modules tend to work best when bought in matched kits.

 

Similar specs may help, however there are no guarantees that they'll work well together, you can certainly try and it MIGHT "just work". We generally do not support mixing kits in this way for this reason.
