Hey all, I currently have two mismatched DDR4 sticks in, coming to a total of 16gb

1 of the sticks is Corsair vengence which should be at 3000Mhz(see picture)
And the other is some off brand called "hypertec", the speed of which I don't know(see picture)

The problem is when I have them both in, the speed is pulled down to 1066Mhz
Is that the speed of the other hypertec stick? Or is it automatically going to that speed because both sticks are a different speed anyway?

My main question is, is it worth me just dropping to 8Gb of RAM at 3000Mhz OR stay with the 16GB at 1066Mhz?

Thanks for any help❤
