Some RAMDisk apps will automatically transfer the data back and forth. Obviously this impacts boot and shutdown times. You also need a good UPS if you're putting a lot of data or important data into the RAMdisk.

On Windows you're best to leave a tiny (ie. 128MB at most) page-file because for some reason Microsoft decided practically requiring it is a good idea, and there's a handful of applications that do need it.

I am not saying Ramdisk is useless, this is just not practical. Hey... people are talking about 50+ GB of ramdisk!
At 116 mb/s my Samsung spinpoint would take >7 mins to fill a ramdisk of 50GB... About 30 sec to fill 3GB of data! I don't let my computer run 24/7 so yea this is just not a good thing. For me. Maybe for you it changed your life having 3GB of file in your ram...

I don't use ramdisks in Windows so I wouldn't know, but I just have a shell script to copy files over. I run Firefox from a RAMDisk, it's a lot faster than it is on one of my spinpoints.

As for copying files back, they're already on my HDD and don't change much at all unless I update. When I get more RAM (ie. 16GB) I'm also going to find a way to do this in Windows to mount my Skyrim Texture Folder on the RAM.

You mean Sandy Bridge. The socket is agnostic to how much RAM is next to it, its up to the memory controller (On the CPU) as to how much RAM it supports)

Not to mention this is 8 DIMMs, meaning it won't fit on 1155 anyway...

I can put any amount of memory I can obtain to good use.
E-peen, irrelevant.
Brand name, irrelevant.
Aesthetics, irrelevant.
That much more data, that much closer to my CPU...relevant.

QFT.

Wait a minute... if you make a RAM disk... what happens when the power goes out? Wouldn't you lose EVERYTHING?

Yes. This is why battery backups exist.

Just get an SSD tongue.gif lol

No seriously. How much would a UPS cost? And a server-grade backup battery? IMO a RAM disk isn't really worth it. At least not for my needs.

A Smart-UPS 1500 would be a good choice for most people. These are $400-500.

I messed with a small ramdisk on my DDR2 system a while back and even an old setup like that was several orders of magnitude faster than the fastest 6gb SSDs.

Yeah but, how long would the battery last if you have an hexacore/SLI rig? 10 minutes? 5? Honestly I wouldn't take such risk with my data.

As long as it lasts long enough to offload the data back to nonvolatile storage, it doesn't matter how long the battery lasts. If the 1500va unit wont keep a certain system lit long enough, then you move up to a 2200va or 3000va. I have two 2200s, personally, though I can't use them with my next PC because they're not 240v.

That's why I only put static or barely changing files on it, stuff like Firefox. Runs a tonne faster when you don't have an SSD but still is easy to back up and the like. (Back it up when it updates, leave it otherwise and have it move all 50MB or so to the RAMDisk on boot)

Sounds good. For my next update I was aiming for 16Gb and loading Chrome on a ramdisk sounds like a nice idea. Just wondering how does it work? Like you tell windows to load all chrome files into the ram disk? If I add a bookmark or want to keep cookies so I don`t have to always type me passwords to log how does the repertory gets updated? I wouldn`t mind also to have CS5 (soon to be CS6) on my ram ready to launch in 1 sec biggrin.gif
