I have 2 sticks of 8gb memory, both different brands (not sure which specifically.) They're supposed to go up to 2666 MHz, which task manager shows, but Cpu-Z and Speccy both show completely different numbers. Is this a problem? And how can it be fixed?
 
@CarelessSoul Task manager and CPU-Z are both correct. Remember that it is DDR memory (Double Data Rate) and thus the throughput is double of the frequency. Task Manager is displaying that for you (2666), CPU-Z is showing the frequency (1330) which you have to double (2660) ... Speccy ... I have no clue.

My trick when I'm not sure if things are reporting good numbers ... go to BIOS and see what it reports.
