RAM as cache
Hi ! I've been using a cloud service (Bitcasa) with 10GB for free for the past couple of days, but i'm not happy with the way it handles big files uploads... something to do with bitcasa trying to cache (i believe) the file before tranfering it via the network...
So, i upgraded my laptop with 8GB of RAM, can i use it as cache instead of the HDD ?
Thank you ! (i run win8 64bit)

You can certainly try out ramdisk and set your temporary files to load onto your ram. If bitcasa has a configuration option to select the cache space folder you can also set that to run off your ram disk.
I have included a quick benchmark of the improvement over various types of hard drives.

Waou that is pretty cool ! thanks a lot ! i'll give a try to that software (unfortunately, i can choose the cache size in bitcasa, but not the location i believe...)
