Luigi, I am not familiar with your mobo so I can't comment on the second setting but the Memory Turbo mode should indeed be enabled if your RAM is fast enough to support it. So if you've got some PC3200 (or higher) RAM and you're not running more than a 200MHz FSB (800MHz effectively) you should be able to handle it. Same goes for PC2700 and a 133MHz (533MHz effective) FSB.You may want to check the manual that came with your mobo for advice on the second question. If you don't have a manual, try downloading a copy from Asus' website.hope this helps,-Max Cowgill

Hi Max,did a short flight test with Memory Turbo Mode enabled and FS9 freezed!!! enough to go back with old settings.Nothing seems to happen using USWC as Video Memory Cache Mode.I'll keep these settings.Thanks Luigi ;-)
