I bought all the components for a new PC on Black Friday, and I'm now trying to figure out how I should set up my new PC's storage. I already own a 1tb WD Black HDD, but now I'll have an Intel 330 180gb SSD as well.
Would I be better off installing Win 7 64bit to the SSD and just using the HDD for storage, or should I install the OS to the HDD and enable Intel's SRT cache technology to substantially speed up the HDD? I have an Ivy bridge cpu and z77 mobo.
I understand that I can allocate up to 64gb to the cache, and then the rest of the SSD will available as a separate partition. Will running Windows 7 like this compare to installing it directly on the SSD? Even if its a little bit slower, I think it'd be worth it because it'll speed up everything I run from the HDD, instead of just the data that's installed directly on the SSD.
Anyone with experience using SRT? I can't seem to find much current information from people who've tried it. Thank in advance.
