Default RAM config

hey...so i just got my new ram today which is an OCZ Platinum 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200)..now it should be 2-3-2-5 but right after i put them in i checked into BIOS and it said 2.5-3-2-5 so i changed it manually to 2 yet in cpuz is still shows at 2.5 ....i already talked with tech support but the settings he gave me ran my memory at 140 instead of 200 then he told me he doesn't know...so what do you think should i RMA ..or is there a solution

Well, according to your BIOS, it has the CAS of 2 and not 2.5, like you originally had. I would trust your BIOS over CPU-Z.

And besides, the difference in performance between 2 and 2.5 is negligible.
