How can I cache my boot drive to an SSD?

Hi there,

I have an Asus Sabertooth Z77 motherboard and was wondering how I can setup boot caching, I have a 80GB Raptor (Boot Drive) that I'd like to cache to a spare 60gb SSD. Is it possible to do? If so, can someone please explain it to me.

Thanks in advanced :)

  1. If you use SSD caching, watch the newegg video, SSD caching is when you only have the small SSD, but you want to get the best performance for the PC. http://video.search.yahoo.com/video/play;_ylt=A2KLqIE3VvBQO3kAerL7w8QF;_ylu=X3oDMTBvcTJzcm5xBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDdmlkBHZ0aWQDVjEzMQ--?p=newegg+video+ssd+cache&vid=c355de323b11d091d8f26bce8cac5e8e&l=14%3A00&turl=http%3A%2F%2Fts2.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DV.4950723717234705%26pid%3D15.1&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DC0hrmPj3wco&tit=Newegg+TV%3A+Intel+Z68+Smart+Response+Technology+SRT+SSD+Caching+Demo&c=1&sigr=11ajkmsia&&tt=b

    If you want to use the SSD for boot drvie, this the way to go, because look like you don't have a lot programs to run ( you have the 80GB raptor). And you are better to upgrade to a 120GB/128GB SSD later.

    Go to WD website to download the "Acronis True Image WD Edition Software" to clone the drive. Or do the fresh install the OS into the SSD, and use the 80GB for storage.
  2. Intel SRT (Smart Response Technology) will work only up to a 64GB SSD. This feature can be enabled within Windows. Here is some directions for you on setting it up http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/CS-032826.htm?wapkw=setting+up+intel+srt+
  3. Thank you very much for the responces! Intel Smart Response was the exact thing I was looking for, thanks!
