SSD Caching Setup on 3TB drive

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've recently purchased a Seagate 3TB drive and a Samsung 128GB SSD hoping to get SSD Caching setup

I own a GA-Z77-DS3H motherboard and both the SSD and 3TB drives are connected to the SATA Revision 3.0 (6Gbps) ports.

I'm receiving an error by the ezsetup software that drives larger than >2.2Tb can not be used with the technology?

are there any workarounds for enabling SSD Caching on my system?

any advice appreciated.

TIA.

Zorg.

Maybe, this works only with HDDs in MBR mode. For 3TB you need to use another partition table, GPT.

A little question; why don't you setup your OS on the SSD? It would be faster than a chaching setup. Or do you already use a SSD for your OS?

Hi Stevie,

During installation of windows 8 it automatically instinctively created a GPT partition. ...my problem was the sata mode was set to ACHI mode, I managed to edit the win8 registry then set sata mode to raid then reinstall all the motherboard software, launch the Intel rapid storage utility then highlight the 3tb drive then hit the accelerate button. Out working at the moment but will test again when I get home so fingers crossed.
