It basically uses system memory set aside for a cache of your hdd/ssd and can increase lifespan of your ssds
Works in both x64 and x32 OS. But optimised for 32bit OS.

Never seriously used it in my entire life of owning this board. A joke if you ask me, since it does not work half the time for me.

It's a custom RAMDisk program, It integrates options to direct cache from certain programs or user temp files to said RAMDisk without you going to each program's options to set it manually. As opposed to most free RAMDisk software it does not have a size limit, like remnant88888 stated, this will increase lifespan of SSD and/or speed up a system with spinners.

It's part of "ASRock extreme tuner", which lets you change ocerclock settings live(no reboot) and includes a HWmonitor. Some of it's cons is it's really late to respond and the window while open takes more ressources then an OC software should. I have been quite impressed by this bundeled software with my motherboard as usually this software is C***.

I can only find a lot of free ramdisk software but no free ramcache softwares.

@wdgann That because "ramcache" is just a ramdisk and settings from each programs sending the files to the ramdisk. Most software bundles doing this won't necessary advertise themselves as ramcache. Here is where to find the settings for various programs:

for browsers: http://downloadsquad.switched.com/2010/11/10/how-to-move-the-firefox-or-chrome-cache-to-a-ram-disk-and-speed/
Windows temp: http://www.ghacks.net/2010/06/10/use-a-ram-disk-to-reduce-writes-on-solid-state-drives/

The principle remains the same always; go to your program of choice, in advanced features you choose the folder where the cache/temp files go, choose a folder on your ramdisk.

I did not know there are, I searched a few times for a free RAMDisk software that did not have size limits, please do share some info on what software you're referring to it'd be appreciated.

By free, I meant something I would not have to spend any money to use. (while remaining in legal ground)
