Question about using SSD's as a cache on the Gigabyte GA-Z87X-OC Force Motherboard.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I'm in the final stages of building my new rig (the thread can be seen here).

I'm using 6 x 60GB SSD's that will be in RAID to make use of the additional speed. Can anyone tell me if I'll be able to do that and have a spinning hard drive as well, with the intent of using the SSD's as the cache of the HDD?

I have a feeling that the cache mode only works with single SSD's and single HDD's, but thought I'd ask anyway.


Many thanks!

You won't have any issues running another HDD with those in Raid. I would just be careful and make sure that you have enough ports. Send us some benches with those all raided 8-)
