So, if I understand you right I would get speed increase if I try to make this 
value larger?

My drive definetely has more then 2 settings, because, I remember that before 
I changed value of acoustic option it was >200 and <256 -- somewhere in the 

So, I wont risk and stay with my current setup until someone here tells me 
that its safe to set some value (and this will give some speed effect) .... 
or until someone else tells that its very dangerous and will slow my drive 
down :).

Thanks for reply.
