Task manager and Crucial system checker conflict

So I’m looking at upgrading my ram on my gaming laptop and when I look in task manager it says my ram is at 2666 yet in the Crucial system checker says I have 3200

 

Not sure which to buy

Just to guess randomly, it Might be 3200 running at 2666 or 2666 memory with a controller capable of 3200 speeds.

So for me to make sure it all in sync properly which do you think I should get, or does it even matter?

I would think the first step is actually knowing what is going on. That two systems are giving different readings implies they’re reading different things and something unusual is going on.

just check download cpu-z, open it, select memory part and if ur DRAM frequency is at 1333.x MHz it is 2666, what could be happening here is that ur ram is originally rated for 3200mhz, but u might have not enabled xmp or ur system doesn't support xmp/3200mhz

So something was wrong with the crucial system checker as cpuz says I have 1333.x and curioisman said that means it’s 2666mhz
