OP here, ty for the information. I didn't realize that it was possible to have a persistent ramdisk. I went ahead and ordered more ram to in order to use 8 of the 32gb as a ramcache and 16 gigs as a persistent ramdisk. The benchmarks show significant improvements using this and a SSD.
Very helpful. If you have any more suggestions to further increase performance using SSD or ram software let me know.
