Best Way to Run 2 SSD's? - Page 2

post #11 of 19
The Hyper X 3K performs faster than the Mushkin Chronos you have. Put more speed oriented files on the Hyper X

I have 2 x 128GB ssd and 1 x 320GB regular hd.
1 ssd for os and programs
1 ssd for files
regular hd for backup and anything else

Would it make sense to run Games and Adobe CS6 on the HyperX and everything else on the Chronos then? If so, how do you partition the drives in that manner?

no partitioning needed, just leave them separate

How do you ensure documents go to the secondary drive in the right manner then? This is my primary fear is things won't be mapped out correctly.

right click the user folder you want moved > properties > location tab > move to wherever you like.

Check my install guide.

Or select which folders you want moved, cut and paste wherever you like.

 

As for mixing ssds, you can do it, but its far from ideal and can be problematic/result in lower performance.

Thanks for the advice guys! Would you run the OS on the same drive as the games/CS6 or the Mushkin?
