What should this be set at?
I found the below three topics about it and they seem to suggest Standard or Turbo.
My system won't boot with Extreme.

-Standard = Lets system operate at its basic performance level.
-Turbo = Lets system operate at its good performance level (default)
-Extreme = Lets system operate at its best performance level.

You are confusing the wording in their meaning of "The lower the performance enhance level..." (This doesn't mean that Standard<Enhance<Turbo, and therefore you should use Standard). It means that Standard 12 > Ehnance x > Turbo 8 and therefore you should use the lowest one which is Turbo.

Hi,

to anybody who this concerns, Performance enhance in Gigabyte boards doesnt relate to ram overclock, or not something like that-

IF You are overclocking, as i am..

changing performance enhance from Norm. to turbo / extreme, will unlock fsb wall, how do you know when youve hit this wall,, benchmarking-benchmarking,,
i hit my fsb wall at 416, anything beyond that even 500 fsb, will show you a huge drop in ram ( specific: large ram allocate reading/writing) speed.

Performance enhance Is something to do with northbride, and fsb channels wich are connected to ram directly.

so fsb can run in even in 500 but if the wall is in somewhere lower, 500 doesnt give anything to performance unfortunately...

i would suggest, benchmarking in different fsb levels, 400,, 416 :p,, 430 etc. try to leave the ram mhz at near same frequencys as possible...

ahh forgot to add,, performance enhance will unlock fsb frequency to higher mhz... if needed. i think this is the main purpose of this little option

The primary function of the Gigabyte Performance Enhance is controlling the Performance Level (Static tRead Value in Gigabyte boards). You should set Performance Enhance to Normal and instead control the Static tRead Value yourself. When overclocking, try from 7 and up. Lower is faster. If unstable, just increase it one step at a time.

Actually you are both wrong and right. I checked this with gigabyte. The standard, turbo and extreme settings does the following:

Standard gives the highest memory frequency but unaltered timing values.

Turbo gives a balance between frequency increase and lower timings.

Extreme gives the lowest possible settings for timing but may actually result in a lower frequency depending on memory.

Pardon? I didn't bump it to say someone is wrong! I explained what the settings does as I have that option on my motherboard and I just got an answer for it. It is an option present in many of Gigabytes boards today and I was just trying to help.

Thanks Sunrazor for the info.

I build non-OC systems and setting it to Standard solved lock-up issues several times. Now I know why Gigabyte boards behave instable with value rams exactly.

If you are overclocking your system, then you should definitely use the Normal setting as this is the standard setting. This will allow you to attain the highest overclock possible. Setting it at Turbo or Extreme asks the motherboard to run the memory at tighter timings (i.e. lower latencies) which could in fact reduce overall frequencies.
This is not just my advice, the guys over at tweaktown who offer support on gigabyte products and at overclock3d recommend the Normal setting.

Sunrazor is completely right as this is what Gigabyte say.

Seeing that this URL is already down, I might as well copy paste the text from cached wepbage as this feature is still relevant in the present and google search often redirects to this thread.

"This feature improves memory performance and memory compatibility and features 3 modes you can choose from: Standard, Turbo and Extreme modes. Standard mode gives the highest OC clock, but with high latency. Turbo mode gives the best balance between clock speed and latency. Extreme mode delivers the best performance with low latency (but memory clock might be lower as well). "

(but memory clock might be lower as well)

what do you mean?

so i have a 1600mhz ram, everything stock

extreme will lower this? or it means it will reduce oc on the ram? for people which oc the ram only

corsair vengeance 1600 i believe cannot be oced
