Looking For Guide, How to Setup Ram Disk and Ram Cache

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have an Asus X79 motherboard and am looking for guides on how to set up a ram disk and ram cache. I've searched this forum and the Asus ROG forum with no luck. I'm hoping someone can provide me with some links or advice on how to set up a ram disk and ram cache.

The link you provided was not what I was looking for but was even better then what I was looking for. Now I know that a Ram Disk is not necessarily the way to go, with 32GB or ram I have it may not help at all. Have to search and read more on Ram Disks.

I have 16GB of RAM and a lot of my data on my SSDs, although SSDs are fast, Ram Disks are slightly faster in terms of real world difference. My Waterfox and iTunes start up 2-3x quicker on my Ram Disk than on my SSD. I used to have it on the M4.
