Question About Intel Smart Response Technology

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well... let me start this off by telling you my current storage setup...
So i have a 60gb ssd for my os and some apps and a 2tb hdd for storage
I am already using a z68 chipset so i dont have to worry about getting a new mobo

Anyway, I was wondering if it would be possible to have a 120gb ssd as my primary drive for my os and some games and dedicate my 60gb ssd as my caching drive for my 2tb hdd using intel smart response technology.

Is this possible? If so help me because i have no idea how to set it up...

Edit, I just realized you want the 120GB SSD as an os drive and cache the second 60GB SSD to the HDD. I don't think you can, but you can try and we can test it out. When you set up Intel SRT you chose which drive you cache to. You usually need the OS installed on a HDD.

I made this guide the other day on installing the os. I have a little on it, I am still developing upon it but it should really help.

Here is a little info on SRT from the guide

Intel SRT Guide!

How to set up Intel SRT:
  1. Here is the basis of the guide
  2. Now to actually make the guide
  3. Idea vomit~
