Default Why isnt my ram running at 1333?

On Saturday I bought the following

XFX 790i ultra
2X2GB Corsair XMS3 DHX Dual Path Heat Xchange PC3-10666 1333mhz cas9

I have left everything bone stock in the bios, defaults are loaded, its currently in linked mode, the cpu's running 1333fsb and i noticed in the bios the rams running 1066mhz and not 1333fsb, does anyone know why?

Also, if i unlink the cpu and memory, and up the memory to 1333fsb will i get better performance?

Thanks guys
