    Hi,
    Yeah show me a benchmark beside disk/ cdm/... or performance test 8-9-10 that it makes a difference on.
    Oh, programs load faster, but to most I don't think it would be significant compared to just the nvme SSD. Obviously faster than gen3->gen4 pci-e SSD.

    Hi,
    Yep if you have the memory to burn it's worth it

    Yes even m.2 don't do anything over 2.5" ssd's on majority of benchmarks.

    If I start running low on memory for photoshoping, I will dump it.

    Some things will never change I should do a Linux boot, I have gotten rusty since programing and running software in production storage and data acquisition servers - and my macbook air which I no longer have

    I reinstalled Windows on my new drive today. I decided to take the 2TB drive and partition it into a 500GB C drive (for windows) and the remainder as an apps/games/VM drive.

    The thought was that I want to be able to use something like Macrium and occasionally grab an image of C that I could restore if disaster strikes. But I don't want my image to contain hundreds upon hundreds of GB's of games and virtual machines. I can grab an image occasionally that contains everything, but day to day, it's the C drive that is most likely to run into a problem due to OS updates and driver updates and such.

    @Cliff I think I've been living under a rock. Not sure why I've never used Asus Ram Cache. Any reason you aren't using Ram Cache III?

    RAMCache II - Is it worth it?

    @pparks1
    That is similar to what I do. I have a 500Gb 960 Pro with 3 partitions. One is system, second my user data, photoshop caches, and downloads, and a third for browser caches. I also have 2 1TB ssd in raid 0 for local system backups and games. Plus 10 TB of hard disks in external enclosures for system and data backups and photos. I use Microsoft Synctoy for data backups and macrium reflect for system images and game backups.

    It is a real convenience to separate data and system partitions - It takes me only 4.5 minutes for a full system backup, and less than that to restore. I have restored hundreds of times I reckon.

    Yep.
    Because version 3 is not for Z370 chipsets
