Burst length?
In my bios it gives me the option to set my DRAM Burst length to 4 or 8

by default its set to 4..

Should I set it to 8, an what does that mean??

DRAM Burst Length (self-abbreviated DBL):

This option basically controls the amount of data that can be "burst" in one read/write. A "burst" has the advantages of only needing to invoke the CAS latency one time, allowing for less delay than a "non-burst" transaction. However, "burst" transactions can only be used for contiguous blocks of data (as only one column address is sent in the burst).

DBL: Performance Gain: % Increase:
4 to 8 0 MB/sec 0%

Our results showed no performance increase at all with changing the DRAM Burst Length, no matter what the circumstances were.

burst length = the amount of data sent/recieved in one go.

Set it to 8 if you don't get errors.
