PCI Subsystem Settings
The following parameters can be set in this menu. Some of them are only
available under special preconditions.
ASPM Support
Active State Power Management (ASPM) is used to power-manage the
PCI Express links, thus consuming less power. Even if ASPM is
generally enabled by this selection, it will only be enabled for a specific
link if the appropriate PCI Express expansion card or onboard controller
supports it also.
Disabled
ASPM is disabled. Power consumption for PCI Express links is
not reduced. Best compatibility.
Auto

mode for PCI Express links is set to L0s (one direction) or L1
(bidirectional).
Limit to L0s
Low power mode for PCI Express links is set to L0s (one
direction). Tradeoff between compatibility and energy saving.
I The latency for PCI Express devices may increase if ASPM is not
disabled. Several expansion cards do not support this feature
correctly, which may lead to an undefined system behavior.
Above 4G Decoding
Specifies if memory resources above the 4 GB address boundary can be
assigned to PCI devices. The selection depends on the operating system
and the populated adapter cards.
Disabled
Only memory resources below the 4 GB address boundary will be
assigned to the PCI devices. This selection is mandatory when
using a 32-bit operating system, but is also supported on 64-bit
operating systems.
