BIOS Option Of The Week - Host Burn-in Mode
12:31 PM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong


Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition.

Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.

This week, we will be taking a look at the Host Burn-in Mode BIOS setting. Here’s an excerpt :
"This BIOS feature allows you to overclock the processor and memory modules, even if Intel stamps its foot petulantly and insist that it is not meant for this purpose. While it does not give you direct control of the bus clocks, it allows some overclocking of the processor and memory modules.

Please note that while this BIOS feature allows some adjustment of the processor and memory bus clocks, it does not allow you to modify individual clocks. Whatever you set using this BIOS feature affects both bus clocks..."

Checked Your CD-Rs Lately?
12:18 PM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong


This is an oldie but we thought we should remind everyone to please retrieve your data from your CD-Rs (if you still have them) before they become unreadable.

Please take a look at what we found when we tested 362 CD-Rs for their data integrity @ Checked Your CD-Rs Lately?.

"As it became common to store backups and personal pictures, videos, etc. on CD-Rs, the lifespan of these discs became a concern. According to manufacturers, CD-Rs should last for decades. Some even quoted an upper limit of 120 years based on accelerated aging tests! That sure is a long time, isn’t it? But will CD-Rs really last that long?"

However, the Int15 [AX=E801> function was later scrapped as not ACPI-compliant. As a result, OS/2 cannot detect the correct size of system memory if more than 64 MB of memory is installed. Microsoft Windows isn’t affected because the BIOS function it uses is ACPI-compliant.

The RAM Disk Guide Rev. 2.1
11:40 AM MYT   |   Posted by: Dr. Adrian Wong


The RAM disk has been around since the 1980s, but it has never been popular due to the high cost of computer memory. It is now making a comeback, partly because RAM is now cheap and plentiful and partly because solid state drives (SSDs) are fast replacing hard disk drives as the storage medium of choice.

SSDs are not only much faster than hard disk drives, they are silent and virtually impervious to vibration and shock. The downside though is their limited lifespan. That’s where the RAM disk comes in - it allows the user to reduce wear and tear on the SSD by shifting some of the work to it.

There are, of course, pros and cons to the RAM disk, and this guide will guide you through it all. On top of that, we will teach you how to make full use of your RAM disk.

In this update, we added a new section called "What File System Should You Use?".
