ASUS SSD Caching for secondary HDD

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I decided, after upgrading my SSD (previously ran X25-M 80Gb x2 RAID 0) to a 240Gb Chronos deluxe, to try configuring my 'Documents" HDD to use one of my 80Gb SSDs as a cache drive using ASUS Cach on the 2011 setup. I always noticed a lag accessing my storage HDD before when using my previous setup. I'm hoping to get some results from this new setup:

240Gb SSD - OS
1Tb HDD w/ 80Gb SSD Cache - Document Drive (Pictures, Music, Documents, etc)
1Tb - backup drive
1.5Tb - media Drive
1.5Tb HDD - second backup


Has anyone else run a similar type of setup/ if so, how has this type of setup met your expectations?

Mine is similar
  • 128GB Plextor M3 - OS, programs, etc.
  • 64GB Crucial M4 - Photo library drive.
  • 1TB Samsung F3 w/ 64GB Kingston v100 as cache - Documents, Downloads, Music, Video, etc.
  • 1TB Samsung F3 - Backup/mirror of my secondary F3 and M4.
  • 2TB Samsung F4 - Movies drive.

Caching does help out a little since I have Steam on my secondary HDD. Otherwise there is no difference for me.
