hey guys just a quick question im using a wd 1tb sata hdd in my system ive just built and was previously using drive as usb mass storage now ive put it on-board was just wondering using window 7 64-bit in the drive settings ive enabled the rite caching shud i check the box that says turn off write cache buffer flushing?
i intend to leave this drive as an internal on-board drive will i gain perfomance if i choose to do this and if so wat are the risks?
thanks guys any help will be much appreciated cheers
If you are now using it as an internal drive, turn on write caching. Windows will be a little more responsive - better performance. The only risk is if the power fails during a disk write, but this would hamper the drive anyhow, so it's a wash.
cheers mate but do i checck the second box bout underneath write cachin that says "turn on write cache buffer flushing too?
It's got mixed reviews. Turn it offand see if you notice a difference. personally, I'd leave it on.
