Users often experience a quicker more responsive system after doing this. Thatís great if you have a Z68 system and donít want to spend $200 on a new SSD to speed things up. But, what about users who donít have an Intel Z68 based system?
That sounds a lot like the hybrid mechanical Drives they are coming out with that have a large cache to act like an ssd drive using Preemptive data storing. Nice idea to put it on the MB. Do you know what typical speed increases are with those?

I didn't look close enough at your benchmark....
I wasn't aware of that. Makes sense to me. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks mi amigo.

No sorry sure don't. With the Z68 boards you just add a SSD and install the IRST drivers and in conjunction with a platter hard drive the SSD stores all the caches. No need to do a reinstall of the operating system to attain a faster running machine. The more you use the machine the more things speed up. You will get faster loading of large files like games for instance.
