Hey, I have the following kit from HyperX https://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/HX432C18FWK2_32.pdf, thing is this kit is no longer in production, when I got this kit 3 years ago I thought I'll add a second kit later on but because it's no longer in production I either have to get an entire 4x16GB kit or try to mix this one.
I tried asking Kingston if their new kit https://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/HX432C16FB4K2_32.pdf will be able to work with the old one since it seems all that's changed is the better timings they said:
The Module HX432C18FWK2/32 used PnP for overclocking, and we no longer use PnP for Fury modules at 3200MHz.
So in this case there is no alternative we can provide.
There is no guarantee that the overclocking will work when using different modules with the HX432C18FWK2/32.
So we would suggest you to replace the modules if you want to increase the capacity and keep the frequency to 3200MH
Other than the PnP thing the only difference is CL16 timings instead of CL18.
Has anyone tried to mix PnP RAM with newer RAM?
Should this even be an issue?

I wouldn’t try to mix RAM.
I really like the kit that you already have.
I’d try to find an identical kit on every platform out there: Amazon, eBay, NewEgg etc.

One mention though:
In rare cases it happens that 2 identical kits don’t work well together.
The safest thing is a kit of 4 modules.

Of course I want to get the identical kit but I can't find it anywhere :( not even the red, black or RGB versions of the same kit, I looked on all the sites you mentioned but no luck

It's not the same kit mate, it's the newer C16 model, I currently have the older C18 kit, thanks for trying though :)
These are the kits I need if I want 100% compatability (same as mine just different colors):

But I couldn't find them anywhere
