So you can try your luck and see if it works with a lot of testing...
And send them back when it does not work, or just buy a new 4x8GB set and sell you current 2x8GB...
@Infernoken, thanks!
I did not realise they were actually paired and tested like that, I think I will just buy a new kit when I have more free cash
