To further what Rob said, I'll be doing additional testing using a 64GB MLC Kingston SSD to see just how it stacks up to Intel's 311 Larson Creek offering.

I just read an article from GIGABYTE that says they are due to launch of Z68 boards with onboard mSATA SSDs. I didn't have time to dig in to see if they are specifically going to be used for disk caching but why else would they do it?

My personal setup is in my signature with the 640GB WD drive split up into a 200GB partition closest to the spindle for games and the rest for general storage. Even on such a small SSD I have about 20GB of space left and my install is really quite light compared to most people.

Intel i5 3570K, MSI Z77Z-GD55, 4x2GB Kingston Genesis 2133mhz, 120GB Mushkin Chronos SSD, 1TB Western Digital Caviar Blue, Intel 210 cache drive, MSI 7850 Power Edition OC, Corsair H100, Silverstone Strider 750w Gold, Killer2100 NIC, Corsair 600T SE White, LG W2242, ROCCAT Kone+, Isku & Kave, 3TB Seagate Backup+, 200GB Western Digital Scorpio Black external drive
