Re: new mainboard with 2 or 4 RAM Slots - more stable with 2 slots?

I've run both triple-channel (6 populated slots for 24GB of RAM) and dual-channel (4 populated slots for 64GB of RAM) with Primocache, and neither configuration had any stability issues at all, even overclocking the RAM (it needs to be a stable overclock of course). None of the RAM was ECC either. F...

Re: Write Cache without Deffer Write

It will absolutely help performance if you use a Read&Write strategy, even without deferred writes. The reason is simple - data being written to the hard drive with a read-only strategy doesn't hit the L2, but is instead dumped on the drive without any write congealing (it bypasses the L2 cache enti...

Re: Compatability Issues

Some backup software can be tempermental about it, but Macrium Reflect is definitely *not*. I use it for workstations and file servers, all of which have Primocache on them (two using deferred writes on UPSs).

Re: L2 cache lost (wiped) on crash

Usually if an App crashes in Windows 8/10, it won't crash the OS. If it does, it may be causing hardware issues like overheating, which would be enough sometimes to crash the system. You might want to monitor hardware temps (CPU/GPU) while playing and see if any are near the thermal limits. You can ...
