My System Specs

Post Intel SRT?

How good is Intel Smart Responce Technology? I realize that that's a really vague question... But I've heard that Intel SRT works, but isn't great.

I'm thinking about using an H77 motherboard (when it launches) along with a small SSD.

Also, what SSDs are good for SRT? Samsung PM830 64GB? Intel 520 60GB? Corsair Force 3 60GB? Anything else?

Thank you all.

I use it and if I compare to my other pc with an SSD as OS drive, I don't see any difference. I use an Intel 40 gb, I think it's plenty.

Depends on who you talk to and how you use your computer

the caching works great if you have a predictable usage pattern and it can keep most of your most frequent 'sectors' in ssd

it works great with on my asus board with a crucial 64gb ssd.. maximum size is 64gb under SRT

i run mine in enhanced mode (write through cache) vs maximum mode which is writeback caching. writeback caching is more risky if you lose power it might not sync back to disk before it dies but it's 10-20% faster

i always run with UPS.. but it's also shared with my 2 4p folders :-P

i use SRT mainly for read speeds, so I run in enhanced mode so it will dedicated the entire drive to do read caching.. i guess if you do equal read-write then then maximum mode might be a good choice
