DRAM Parity / ECC Mode

On a system that supports both parity and ECC error detection / correction modes--most newer systems support either both or neither--selects which mode is activated. ECC stands for "error correcting code" or "error correction code" and is a more advanced error detection and correction protocol than straight parity.

The default for this setting is normally "Parity"; it is ignored or disabled if "DRAM Parity Checking" is disabled.
