    So Samsung's Rapid Mode or Over Provisioning would be similar to Ram Cache would it not? Has anyone tried Samsung's?

    Rapid mode works only on SATA drives and it's just an artificial value derived from system RAM caching. Doesn't do nothing in real work.
    Over provisioning doesn't help speed, only supposedly durability of SSD.

    Rapid Mode only works on Samsung 2.5" SSDs, and nothing else, and is actually slower than RAMCaching.

    Over Provisioning has nothing to do with it, that's for all SSDs, so they you can make sure the disk doesn't get filled up too much, and the SSDs controller has enough free blocks for retrim and garbage collection.
    For retrim, it's kind of like defragging, as data is moved from cells in blocks that are marked as allowed to be written over, to empty blocks, then the "dirty blocks are trimmed, and the blocks can be rewritten to.

    Interesting. Thanks Cliff and Mike. Guess I will give this RAM caching a try... I just brought a 2 TB 860 EVO. No fancy speeds like what's been posted but I wanted the space and write durability the 2TB offers.

    Had a chance to run some Call of Duty Cold War tonight to put a load on the new system. Running ryzen 9 5900x, with evga 3080 ftw3 ultra, with be quiet dark rock pro 4 cooler, in fractal meshify s2 case with 3 stock 140mm fans. I run a 2560x1440 monitor.

    Running the game at ultra and maxed out, my cpu was running 64c-72c. FPS around 160 using the in game counter. Watching my GPU, seeing about 62c consistently. Running a slight undervolt, using msi afterburner I have it at .850mv at 1900Mhz. My ambient room temp about 20c. Played for about 2 hours. My son played for last hour, so I could watch temps and take a break.

    Very happy with everything.

    @Cliff Can you tell me how to use RAMCache? Is it as simple as just selecting the drive and clicking start? How can I RAM Cache multiple drives?

    Select smart mode, and how many MB of RAM you want to use, then start.

    How do you know it's working and does it work on all available drives simultaneously?
