Default Weird thing in my BIOS...

so i was looking at the memory page in my BIOS and it shows 3 of my memory sticks at DDR3 1066 with timing of 7-7-7-20 and then 1 of them as DDR3 1333 9-9-9-24...

i have this ram:

Newegg.com - CORSAIR 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory

4 gigs of it though.

last time i fiddled with the memory stuff in my BIOS i couldnt POST so i didnt wanna touch anything until i consulted the guys here...the timings and such are currently set on "automatic" as i was instructed to keep them on before. this 1066 with 7-7-7-20 timings is kind of annoying though.

Could be a limitation of the BIOS or motherboard.

IMO, let the bios handle it.
