    Huh? :?:

    If you are trying to tweak the L2 cache... the only real setting is to disable ECC checking in the BIOS - but this only gets you about 1% extra performance, and the L2 cache is then vulnerable to errors, so unless you're the world's worst performance freak leave ECC enabled
    What came first - Insanity or Society?

    i assume you are referring to the Windows XP guide part 2

    see this quote:
    NOTE: Sorry about this people, but the original version of this article showed me, in the above tweak, entering data in Hexadecimal mode. The L2 Cache of your processor should be entered in Decimal mode. Sorry, guys :(.
    Enter the data in Decimal mode

    Unless you know 100% for certain that your OS is incorrectly reporting your CPUs L2 Cache- dont mess with the setting at all. Bad things can and will happen if you screw up.

    If for example I were to set it in decimal, would I return the setting to normal by setting 0 in hexadecimal ?
