Question Bad G.SKILL-F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK RAM?

Hey guys, when I upgraded my system I replace my 4x1Gb modules of Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400C4 Ram with a G.SKILL-F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK set.

Every performance test I ran looked low to me for the speeds & timings they were running, so I did a test & swapped out the G.Skill with my old Corsair Ram with the exact same timings & speed & tested again.

Much to my amazement the Corsair scores soared over the G.Skill BIG-TIME with the exact same settings!!!
So this makes me think there's something wrong with the set I got.
What's weird though is when I run diagnostics on them they report back fine with no errors of any kind.

Here's the pics of Everest Cache-Memory Benchmark running the G.Skill & the Corsair.
Tell me what you think about this & get back to me as to why this is...weird that my Corsair DDR2-6400 wipes out the G.Skill DDR2-1066...
Is this normal performance for G.Skill 1066 Ram???
I don't thinks so...

Anyways, until I can get a replacement set (2x2Gbs instead of 4x1Gbs modules) I'm going to keep running my old Ram for the performance.
Seems stupid to have the rest of the system in high gear & the Ram in 1rst gear!
