The 4GB SSD cache is a read only cache. No tweaks needed as it is done by the firmware.

What are u gonna do with the PC? Games or bit of everything?

I would use the drive for the system + page split/shared with another drive and the programs. And the Document folder would be moved off of this drive.

If u are not a gamer and u have a plenty of the space, than I would partition it to two partitions and move the Doc folder on the second partition.

Doc move help...if needed.
