I know! I was originally having system stability issues and ruled out RAM and Power Supply. So when I changed the board I thought hell, why not update my SSD. Read some articles and found this drive to be very fast. Very happy with it! Plus its about 1000x sexier than my previous Corsair. Even though you cant really see it in the case. lol

First is my original score, second is my tweaked score by caching data to RAM and delaying write to SSD ( to be used only with battery backup as an unexpected power loss would result in lost data and possible corruption )

Download a program called "FancyCache". Its still in Beta, so keep that in mind. Download FancyCache for Disk 0.8.0 Beta Free - Virtual Cache for Disks - Softpedia

This program once installed definitely needs a system reboot to access your drive.

You can configure multiple options including how much memory the program uses in RAM, block size, ect.

Mainly need to play around with settings to see what works best. Obviously, the faster RAM you have the better the results. Also more RAM is clearly better as you can allocate more to the program without sacrificing programs loading in the background.

There is a section about Fancycache, and the settings they used (and which I replicated, which is the results you are seeing in the SS to the right) here : Speed Up SSD & Optimize For Performance with 9 Quality Tweaks

Very critical you have battery backup or are doing non essential things, because when you've set it to cache to RAM...Any power interruptions, unexpected reboots, power spikes, ect could very well ruin your day data wise.
