CPU Level 2 Cache

Common Options : Enabled, Disabled

Quick Review

This BIOS feature controls the functionality of the processor's Level 2 cache.

When enabled, the processor's Level 2 cache will be allowed to function. This allows the best possible performance from the processor.

When disabled, the processor's Level 2 cache will be disabled. The processor will bypass the Level 2 cache and rely only on the Level 1 and Level 3 (if available) caches. This reduces the performance of the processor.

The recommended setting is obviously Enabled since disabling it severely affects the processor's performance. However, the Disabled setting is useful as a troubleshooting tool, especially when you are overclocking your processor.
