Have you tried FancyCache http://www.romexsoft...ncy-cache/index.html
? Should be especially useful to limit writes since it accumulates them. I have read all forum posts
about it and seen happy people at a SSD forum. Some bugs, features missing but most seem to like it. How much it helps probably depends on amount of ram and what apps can benefit. To limit task for sensitive SSD is a main feature. Last beta now have accumulates writes trick. Have also tried it on normal hd and yes benchmarks are on Ramdisk level. Works much like the more known SuperCache http://www.superspee...sktop/supercache.php
from what I can see but for now it is free. Looking at their prices for ramdisk I doubt that will continue.
Can also use flash drive, any other drive as cache btw. Or may be only SSD, Flash - look it up... I uninstalled yesterday! Level II cache is another drive where Level I is main memory, including "invisible" part.
Not to be tested on "production" computer
Must say I am a bit surprised how XP can be so noisy but I guess it must be due to how SSD is handled. XP is dead quiet compared to Vista/7.
