What Software is Similar to Asrock x555?

I live in a humid area and for that reason prefer the gigabyte UD4-5 mobos because they have "Humidity Protection - New Glass Fabric".

But I really like the x555 features of my friends Asrock board.

Is it possible for GB or Asus users to get similar software to work for their computers?
The virtual ram catche feature is great, guessing that it would be very beneficial for people who have ram faster then 1600Mhz.

  1. You realize that those programs are crapware and don't really do anything good apart from eating your computer resources?

    Ram caching works... Plus if you have 16gb memory you can easily give up 6gb as cache..

  3. Sure it does. But what's the point of it? You'll still have to add data to the ram disk every time you turn on PC, as it will take much longer than opening a program from your hard drive.
  4. Doesn't it save the virtual disc permanently? =)

    No. RAM is volatile memory. It means when it's powered down, it loses all the contents.

  7. Didn't know that. Thanks Sunius. Since I can't think of any specific use for excess ram.

    And because 1600mhz DIM speed is known to pretty much be the observable real-time cap in ram speed. If you have the extra money. Is it better to spend it on 1600 ram with 7-7-7-t1 timings over 2000 with 10-10-10-t1 (or 9-9-9-t1)?
  8. 2000 MHz ones will be faster.

    How much faster would it be in 'real time'? Compared to a 1600Mhz 7-7-7-t1


    Is it like this... after 1600 9-9-9 the scaling for real-time speed becomes worse. so
    1600 7-7-7 is 3% faster and
    2000 9-9-9 is 5% faster?

    Not sure if I should call that hilarious or depressing. Does ram frequency beyond 1600Mhz increase ANYTHING real time? Boot time? Video rendering? Going over 1600Mhz is obviously pointless for gamers but WHO benefits from it apart from benchmarkets with nothing better to do.

    Oh and thanks for digging up the link, it was very enlightening.
  11. That's how it works :).
