Memory timings... Bios and cpuz don't match up.

So basically as the title says, my memory timings don't match up. I have the 2gb(2 x 1gb) g.skill 240 pin pc6400 ram.

The stock timings on that ram are specified at 5-5-5-15. I was looking at Cpuz and it said my timings were 5-6-6-16. So I went into my bios, thinking something must have gotten messed up, and I find that the Bios still says timings, on auto, are at 5-5-5-15. Whats the deal here? I'm confused, any help is appreciated.

btw I have a Gigabyte P35-DS3R.

Low and behold, I figured it out just minutes after posting this lol. I couldn't figure out how to get my DS3R to run at 1:1 ratio, because I THOUGHT I was on the lowest multiplier my mobo would let me go to(which was 2.5, 4:5 ratio). Unknowing to me, Gigabyte doesn't like to put the ratio's in any order, so 2.0 was sitting somewhere in the middle of the list(maybe they are in some order based on something I am unaware of). Anyway, after figuring this out and switching to 1:1 ratio, my timings are now 5-5-5-13 in cpuz. So who knows, sorry to waste bandwidth lol.
