I dont think it matters really, but i dont think im to qualified to say that.... Wait a bit for some more response, though i think you should be fine. 👍

It's unlikely with an additional 16gb of system memory that you will be running XMP 3000mhz speeds. 

 

So the choice is redundancy (more memory) or better performance (Higher frequency). 

 

Don't get me wrong, some people get lucky and 4 sticks, but 3000mhz is actually an oddball frequency. Generally 2933mhz and 3200mhz are pretty standard speeds on ddr4. So if you install more and it doesn't post XMP, leave xmp enabled but select a lower frequency and see if it works.

 

Good Luck!
