I'm just curious to know if there are any advantages or disadvantages to fill my RAM slots. I currently have 2 8gb sticks in A2 and B2....

What is that for a question? What means fill your mem slots? You want to add two more sticks to the existing two? Well, not populating slots is a problem but mixing memory what usually leads to stability issue.

The board has 4 slots. I have 2 sticks of #hyperx furry DDR4 8gb already installed in A2 and B2 because the board required that configuration. I just want to know if it makes more sense to have 2 16gb sticks in those slots or adding 2 more 8gb sticks of the same RAM in the other 2 available slots. Is there any performance differences?

I already told you what happens. Stability issues guaranteed. No performance increase too of course. THis is a dual channel platform.

Mixing memory is a very bad idea. Only a matched kit ensures stability.
