Memory overclock DDR timing Issues

I recently purchased 2 sets of G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL for a grand total of 16GB of Ram. I am running the GA-970a-ud3 gigabyte motherboard. When i purchased the ram i did some research and everyone said that the bios will set itself to run at 1333MHz and you have to adjust to 1600MHz because the 1600 is just an overclocked 1333. Simple enough but as far as the ddr timing items go im not sure what to insert. Right now it is just set to auto and i will list the information below of what it says. I know the g.skill ram i purchased is DDR3 1600, 9-9-9-24, Cas Latency 9, and voltage 1.5. Im not sure what i all need to change.

The Bios has the following
DDR Timing Items
1T/2T command timing
CAS# latency auto 11T
RAS to CAS R/W Delay auto 11T
Row Precharge time auto 11T
Minimum Ras Active Time 28T
Twtr command Delay 6T
Trfc0 for DIMM 1,3 160ns
Trfc1 for DIMM 2,4 160ns
write Recovery time 12T
Precharge time 6T
Row cycle time 39T
RAS to RAS Delay 5T

Memory Clock X8=1600 which i had to change form 1333

CPU-Z had the following
Type DDR3 Channels Dual
Size 16384 MBytes NB Frequency 2214.8MHz

Dram Frequency 805.4MHz
Cas# Latency(cl) 11.0 clock
RAS#to CAS# Delay (trcd) 11 clocks
RAS# Precharge (tRP) 11 clocks
Cycle Time (tRAS) 28 Clocks
Bank Cycle Time (tRC) 39 clocks

  1. from my under standing i believe i should change the
    CAS# Latency to 9
    RAS to CAS R/W Delay to 9
    Precharge time to 9
    Row cycle time to 24

    Please correct me if im wrong and i still done know what to change everything else to.
