Intel smart response, mSATA slot mobo, SATAIII SSD, and RamDisk question
 
I was wondering if my build has SATAIII SSD, and a MomentusXT SATAIII, if I would gain any performance by installing a mSATA SSD on a Gigabyte z68/z77 board, with a msata slot built in, will intel smart response tech on msata outperform a cherryville SSD? I dont see how based on the specs of msata ssd's, otherwise intel smart response would be on SB-E/X79, but wanted to ask. I suppose it would save my main SSD some writes/reads if nothing else prolonging the life. these mSATA SSD's are pretty cheap so I was curious.

Would setting a ramdisk be a smart thing with only 16gb of ram? so using 4GB of the 16GB as a ramdisk for example, I'm concerned it may reduce my performance.

Thanks for the help, see my build below...

You could use an mSATA SSD with the momentusXT, but im not too sure how well that would work.
