Buying 4x 8GB x 2 kits for quad channel

I have noticed 8GB x 2 16GB kits are very less pricey as a 8 x 8GB to fill up all 8 dimm slots. Can I buy 4 of these 16GB kits and have it work with no issues ?

No guarantee since they were not tested together as a kit. The user assumes risk and duty to test if using multiple/separate kits

they'll usually play together at stock/XMP clocks, but likelihood of OC issues are much greater when not using matched kits.

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

Pretty much this

I generally though wouldn't tell people to OC their RAM anyways if they are unfamiliar with it, easy enough to do, just easy to screw it up and harder to diagnose (especially with mismatched sticks)

The only difference I know of with matched vs separate sticks is the timings may be better suited to obtaining stability in a MB with 4 sticks and the warranty.
So with that in mind you are less likely to have trouble if you are willing to OC\tweak to get it working than if you just want a set and forget setup.
