Good question, I think it depends on what chips are in the DIMMs. With a 3600C16 kit, there is a fair chance that is Bdie. That might make sense, as those run well on Ryzen and OC well.

Here's an article from Tom's that is a quick read and can explain the differences.

Are both kits on G Skill's QVL for your motherboard?
From Toms:
  • Going from two ranks to four ranks of memory is by far the best way to improve performance in memory-bottlenecked applications. At current memory density, that usually means having at least 32GB (even if you don’t think you’ll use that much capacity).

Thanks guys for the answers!
I'm going with the 3200 Dual rank....
