How to setup SSD caching on Intel Z68?
  

I recently brought Intel Z68 Motherboard. I am unable to setup SSD caching. Anyone who have any idea how to do this.

  1. Connect the disk caching and HD SSD storage in the Intel SATA ports. Do not make use of 3rd party such as Marvel, unable to function.
  2. Enter the BIOS; alter the mode to RAID HD
  3. Install the operating system
  4. Download the latest driver commencing from Intel RST.
  5. Unlock RST utility, the tab will go faster
  6. Allow acceleration
  7. Restart.

What do you mean by "more secure? If it is encrypted, do not see what that means? Or does it mean they are less likely to fail, because it uses less frequently SSD?

Safer than you will not lose your data. For instance, if your SSD dies you will not misplace any data. With the maximize mode if youíre SSD dies might lose data.

Only a small difference between the best and maximize what you have to decide whether to run the risk of data acceleration unit for that extra 2 seconds to boot. The difference in performance between the two is lot.

His only cached data though (which is reflected in the hard drive). So how is safer when the data is previously on the hard drive anyhow? The cache is just a mirror.

The cache is a mirror for enhanced mode so it does not matter if the SSD dies or you unplug it. With an improvement in read mode is better than writing perf bottleneck writing drilling HD, so it will be a little slower.

To maximize the way data is written to the SSD and then synchronized with the hard disk later. Thus, if the drive dies before you write to HD data loss.

I did not know that! After looking up, is not different from data loss with write-cache enabled on a normal hard disk. I guess the difference here is the enormous amount of data being rewritten in front of cached on the hard drive?

How often does 'sync'? How big of a risk that it really is?

The risk is negligible in realism. You possibly will desire to make use of the mode of development if they are working on a CB that cannot be steady yet, or if you have power outages on a regular basis, nevertheless in a more maximized is completely safe.

Not sure how often it syncs. Intel documentation says only that data is written to the SSD and "sometimes" transferred to the HD. No suggestion how often is standard.

Re: How to setup SSD caching on Intel Z68?

You do not wish for to reinstall the operating system right? Iím assuming you are in W7? Do not unite the 60GB SSD yet. primary be appropriate with the following registry setting:

Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ Iastorv 
In the details pane, click "Start" and then click Modify. 
In the Value data box, type 0
This change allows the RAID controller to log into Windows. Then install the RAID controller. Now you be able to unite your SSD caching and at the same time also make convinced that your storage unit is in an Intel SATA port. Then position the acceleration to choose your drive and disk storage to accelerate.

If the operating system is not installed do not worry about the registry settings and stuff and just follow the procedure in a message. If the hard disk storage Intel port will be displayed in the list of units that can accelerate.

Re: How to setup SSD caching on Intel Z68?

If you have an SSD for the operating system, then we do not desire to cache anything at all. If you have only a SSD, and are annoying to make a decision between what is a volume to put the operating system instead of caching hard drive, then that's one more call. Essentially, I would say it depends on the size of SDD.

If it is 60 GB or smaller, then the use of the cache on your hard drive and put everything on the hard drive (which work faster than a regular hard drive and is very easy to handle, because it is a partition larger).

If greater than 60 GB, then it is probably best to just use it as your boot drive, and the placement of your operating system on it directly, rather than hard disk cache at all. (Only up to 64 GB can be used for caching by IRST, so if you choose to use a larger SSD, you must specify the amount of cache is and how much is an extra partition pure SSD).If you have more than one SSD, use a big one for the operating system, and a small cache on your hard drive.
