what do they do?

They are 2 unknown options i found in my mobo bios.

1) Should i enable or disable "write to read delay"?

2) What value should i assign to "read to write delay"? 0? 1? 2? 3?


please tell me if u know the answers , thanks.

I guess American Megatrends is more user-friendly after all...:)

Yeah, you're right... sorry, guess that was my fault.
And... don't the manual of the main board explain these? Which company made the bios? I only know a few things related to AMI. :(

For optimal performance, you'd want to disable WR delay and set RW delay to 0. However, this may cause system instability if your DRAM module cannot handle this.

Suggestion:
Disable WR delay. If your system's stable, slowly reduce RW delay... stop only when you encounter instability...

Kairi, could you please explain what are these, anyway? I'm curious now. :sad:

I'm just taking a stab at it... I'm not 100% that those settings are what I have in mind, but my intuition tells me that it's related to the delay time between reading and writing to a DRAM module. Usually when a CPU reads, and then writes to RAM, there's a delay time to switch between the two modes. Reducing the RW/WR delay reduces the turnaround time, and thus improve system performance. But if your DRAM module can't handle the faster turnaround time, your system may become unstable.

I know that's a lousy explanation, and a lot of hand-waving argument there, but that's... the gist of things. If anyone else can provide a more detailed explanation/correction, feel free to do so :)

No, that's pretty ok, thanks for your time!! I could really understand. I had a bit of "industrial electronic" a few years ago, and it involved computers as well. ;)
