Optimize Level 2 Cache Timing

On some motherboards, the timing used to control the operation of the level 2 cache is fixed and cannot be changed. In others, it can be adjusted by using this BIOS setting. I normally advise that you leave the setting on "Auto" if it is there at all, but you may be able to get a small performance improvement by using a more aggressive setting. See this section on level 2 cache timing for guidelines on the appropriate settings. If you change to a more aggressive setting and encounter problems, you should of course back off to the previous value.
