How to: Set up Intel Smart Response Technology (SSD caching) - Page 21

You can easily get away with a 64GB SSD for OS. Temp files don't take up much room tongue.gif. What programs you using? I had a ton of media productivity software installed and didn't take up much room.
Not sure it is CPU fan issue... Because everything worked before this, pretty fine... Also Noctua CPU is on it, works with no problem...
As I said, iTunes for example for it's idiotic libraries, files, media files, and other **** takes a ton per device...
Also, I don't want to get my SSD to full, which happened before... And if I use SSD I want to use it... Not only with OS, but with other stuff I do, from gaming to video rendering, encoding and such...

So, do you maybe got some pics how you set-up your Asus bios to work with this?
Also, any other hardware ideas that I might try?

And also, weird stuff, every time I try to install Windows 7 with external DVD/RAM it asks me to load drivers for storage, and when I try to install with internal drive it goes normally, but still shows as 746GB... WHY WHY WHY?!??!!?!??! :O Darn M$ tongue.gif

Sean, tell me, what if I try to install Windows 7/8 in AHCI mode, and after I boot up (it everything goes fine) to Windows, will I be able to change from AHCI to RAID manually? And will that all work with IRST after that?
Tnx!

EDIT: Right now I cleared CMOS to get the BIOS to default settings, and in AHCI it sees the Windows Boot Manager boot option, but when I change it to RAID it doesn't see it anymore... Any idea why?
How should I be able to install windows in RAID if I can't see it... LOL

SOLVED:
The problem was that I only had one HDD connected to my PC. I forgot to connect my SSD drive, and it's logical that it won't work in RAID if you only have one HDD...
So I have installed Windows 8, and everything is working fine, installed IRST, recognized the whole 3TB, and caching on SSD is working too...

But the problem is that I reconnected my other two hard drives, 1x 500GB and 1x 640GB, and Windows 8 won't boot, it's standing at black screen.
Does all hard drives needs to be formatted in GPT or? Because I think that one of the two drives is in MBR and other might be in GPT, not sure yet...
So, any suggestions?
Also, sorry Sean for inconvience and all this mess, and really really really thank you very much for helping me out!!!!!!!!!!! wink.gif

EDIT/SOLVED:
And, SOLVED that problem too! biggrin.gif
When I set up that two HDDs to be hot swapable, Windows 8 booted instantly, showing up all HDDs and all partitions that I had before! wink.gif
That's it xD

Weird, I'm using RAID mode and don't need 2 or more drives installed at one time. wth.gif

Hm, definitely weird stuff, but still this part might be added to some of your guides, for future information about this MBO, and this problem that I had.
Maybe you could make a shorter version of this.
Also, include that part where you just install Windows to GPT 746GB, not showing yet the full size of HDD, but later in Windows after installation of IRST everything works fine wink.gif
And also the hot swapable thing wink.gif
As you might see, my English is pretty bad, so ye, if you can add this in your guide/s it would be awesome smile.gif
Tnx again! wink.gif

Suppose you already have an SSD in your computer for the OS and critical apps. My motherboard has an mSATA slot for an mSATA SSD. Would it be worth it to add that for caching, if I have a 3TB mechanical drive? And, if so, would 64GB of caching be enough?

Also, suppose this machine is for a graphic designer who uses Adobe CS6.

i will not suppose anything! tongue.gif

It may help. And 64GB is the limit for caching with intel's system.

May is not concrete. Can it or not? And why? :/ Because I have a client who is asking me about that and I'm not sure if it's worth it for her (Graphic designer).

I don't think any of that is necessary as Sean's guide is very to-the-point and easy to follow. There really is no "shorter" version either.

Maybe not all, but some things would be nice to know when installing this IRST thing... As you might stuck at some stupid thing which will take 2-4 days to solve, and it was just 3 words, "connect 2nd drive" wink.gif
