P5LD2 help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just recently picked up a P5LD2 and when in the BIOS, under the chipset options, there are 2 fields not covered in the manual that I cannot figure out.
One is for DRAM thermal throttling(?) and the other is for air flow. The airflow I sort of fingured out, the only question there is, it can be set to normal convection, 100 meters of air per minute or 200. Is there a way to know how much air my case pushes just from how many fans. Further more, is there any bad effects for turning off the DRAM thermal thing (in bios it said it will run faster but not as stable). Any help would be appreciated.

I actually have a post on the ASUS support forum about those two BIOS items. When I get some info, I will let you know.

thanks guys. for now, i have the DRAM thermal throttle disabled and the air flow set to 100 linear feet/min. I figured with a zalman 9500 and 4 80mm aspire case fans, i gotta be pushing a decent amount of air. started to OC last night, and I must say this board is makin it very easy.

I got my answer from the ASUS support forums, but I dunno if I really believe it:

Quote:
DRAM Throttling Threshold is a implementation that throttles back the ram in relation to memory module temperature. However, since memory modules, at least at this time, do not have temperature sensors, this implementation is accomplished through a GMCH (Graphics Memory Controller Hub) reading of read and write activity on the memory banks. There is an algorythm or formula that is intended to determine, from the number of reads and writes, what the module temperature might be and if the threshold is reached, the voltage to the ram is reduced and the ram is 'throttled'.

Platform Air Flow is a parameter that assists the algorythm in determining what the ram module temperature might be.

That being said, this particular technology is intended for Intel mobile platforms (Laptop ..CoreDuo...Centrino technology) for cooling mobile systems so what it is doing in your desktop BIOS is puzzling.
