Two Different Types Of Ram In My System

I have 20GB of RAM installed and would like to enter timings in my BIOS in order to get the best performance.

So my question is two fold...here are the two modules:

http://mckealty.comlu.com/Slot2.PNG

Here's a link to my BIOS settings.

What should I enter and where for these RAM modules? Or would I be better served downgrading to 12GB of RAM, all the same as the modules in slot 1?

1. Mismatched ram is not a good thing.
2. Trying to manually set the ram timing on mismatched ram is a waste of time and causes problems.
3. Set the ram to Auto and it will adjust it to the slowest ram you have installed.

Of course this is just my opinion.

That's what I've always figured...but I've wondered if the 20GB would make up the difference as opposed to the 12GB.

Just that many more gigs to cause problems.
