Have 2X8GB Gskill Ripsaw 2800 1.2V (16-16-16-36) in a AB350 Pro 4 for a few years(Ryzen 5). Just grabbed 2X8GB GSkill Ripsaw 3200 1.35V (16-18-18-38) to bump up to 32GB total, and can't manually adjust bios to make them come up above 1800MHZ to say 2666MHZ 1.35V(keeps rebooting to default after a couple tries)? Is the compatibility list really that sensitive and this cause is lost? Thanks for your time and response if helpful!

Those are 2 very different models of RAM kit. It's very common for mixed RAM setups
to not be able to reach their full XMP speed. That said, try installing only the
3200 kit and enabling XMP, then, manually lower the frequency down to 2666 and
then restart. If it works fine and boots into the OS then shut down and install
the other kit. You can try mixing the kits so the 2800 kit in A1 and A2 then the
3200 kit in B1 and B2. I have found that sometimes lets you get a bit more out of
a mixed setup.
