PrimoCache, anyone recommend it or use it?

I'm currently using a trial version of PrimoCache. I have 32GB's of ram and no real use for it, so why not. But, I'm not super familiar with ram cache. Is this just a benchmark only thing or can you actually get a benefit from it?

Just load times is speedy
RAMCache lll software turns milliseconds into microseconds to boost game-load times. Fully compatible with the latest NVM Express® storage options, its uniquely intelligent technology effectively caches an entire storage device so that favorite games and apps launch at breakneck speeds.

Program loading speed will largely come down to the program and how much of a bottleneck the CPU is when decompressing the files.
If you have a fast NVMe drive and load times are slow it is likely that the CPU is the limit and the software is possible single threaded when it comes to decompressing files when loading.
If the CPU is not the bottlneck then the load times are likely already under 5 seconds with a fast SSD and there is only so much room for improvement.

I have found that RAM speed seems to have a bigger impact on load times than SATA vs NVMe SSD in some games where the CPU is the bottlneck.

I tried RAMCache but I could only use ram on one drive only. I have ram spread across 5 drives with PrimoCache. So far it's not bad. It's getting faster with use.

CPU i'm using is a FX-9370 @ 5.2ghz. Ram is at 1866 only because this setup is super picky with anything over the 2000mhz mark with 32GB of ram.
