Memory Test Tick Sound

When enabled, the POST memory test will make a tick sound as it counts up your system memory. Most people leave this enabled, others turn it off because they find the sound annoying. Many newer systems skip this option and turn the sound off entirely.

When building a system, it is recommended that you enable this, as the sound will act as a confirmation that your speaker is working, and that the POST is progressing normally. This is important during the first few boots of a system, and also if you are having video problems.
