Just finished a new build and am wondering: Are there any potential issues with adding an SSD in a few months to take advantance of the Smart Response technology? Is it worth taking advantage of this technology (i.e., user reviews appreciated)
Finally, another feature of a Z68 chipset is known as SSD caching [aka Smart Response] which is where it allows the use of a small (say 10 or 20 GB) Solid state hard drive to act as a cache for a larger ‘traditional’ hard disk. If you are already planning the use of a Solid State drive this feature is redundant.
If you can’t afford a decent size SSD (40GB+) then there are more cost effective ways around using a small SSD and SSD cashing like spending less on a motherboard, (H67 chipset or even a P67 chipset) and putting the saved money into a decent size SSD.
