ASrock extreme4 z77 question on 2 BIOS settings

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just run my OS (Windows 7) off a single SSD. Is having Intel Rapid Start and Intel Smart Connect enabled in BIOS useful? Or is it a waste? My searches are providing conflicting information on this.

Basically my SSD runs everything and I have 1 separate drive for media storage. Pretty simple setup

If you like to put your PC to sleep often, then what Intel Rapid Start will do, is make that time to wake back up, a little faster. If im not mistaken it requires some gigs to do and there's no point in enabling it because your running windows from SSD, which is pretty fast already. Save the extra gigs.

Thanks, i'll disable that since i never use sleep

What about Intel Smart Connect?

Intel Smart Connect i know is mostly used in laptops (at least thats what i knw). It's what the name says "Smart Connect", you put ur laptop to sleep and it will check on updates from time to time. I imagine its same concept with PC.
