I have a 64gb ssd crucial c300 laying around not in use. Ive got a crucial m4 256 plugged into sata 3 port as boot drive and a wd blue 1tb hdd in the other sata 3 port for all other media. Ive read about SSD cache drives and I dont think my x58 board will support it. What could I do with the ssd? Any ideas? Thanks for you help.

don't think you want to use a cache drive with an ssd. you may want to use in in another machine to compliment a hd?

I have 2 x 128gb SSDs

1 for OS and most of the apps, the other for other applications and documents. MS Office, Word/Excel/Other docs.

Opening an moderately complex Excel doc is near instantaneous. Opens almost before my finger stops moving from the click.

Adding it in to your system for additional app storage is a good idea. Or maybe use it to host guest OS' for vmware or virtualbox.
