3700X Dual Channel with Single & Dual rank memory
I would like to ask anyone who has information about combining memory, whether it is a good idea to mix 2 single rank memory and 2 dual rank memory with Zen 2. I have found out on one site that it shouldn't be a problem, as long as they have same chips, frequency, primary, secondary timings, electric layout, etc. Somehow I am sceptical about it.
I know X470 Taichi has T-topology, which should mostly rectify disadvantage of using 4 ram modules, compare to Daisy chan topology, which is ideal for 2 ram modules (in dual channel systems). So I thought it might suprise me, and work very well, even though not usually implemented. Anyway I want to ask before I would waste a lot of time for something what (probably) isn't going to work.

16GB 3800MHz 1:1:1 CL15-16-16-16 (Fast Preset in DRAM Calculator)
RAM modules I'm talking about:
First (Current) set of RAM: G.Skill F4-3200C14D-16GTZ
Second set that I ordered: G.Skill F4-3200C14D-32GTZ
Q: Can I mix different size of single and dual rank in 3700X, when I want to OC memory and CPU? Should I put 2 8GB rams in 1 channel and 16GB rams in other channel, or how should I combine them? Do they need different voltage for optimal perfomance? What perfomance penalty should I expect?
I planned to change 16 GB Single Rank for 32 GB Dual Rank, and repurpose 16 GB set in other build that I plan. But then I realized other build won't be build at least for half a year, so I wondered if I could use them together with second set that I ordered.
Thanks for any info.
