M5A78L-M LX Plus SSD caching?

Kalistol

Hi there. I'm looking to buy a cheap 32GB SSD for caching, but I'm not sure if my motherboard would like it. I'm running an M5A78L-M LX Plus motherboard (if that wasn't evident by the title). Anyone have any knowledge on this? I've googled it to no avail. Also, what would be some good software if I can?

Thanks in advance. -Kali

If you're asking whether that mobo supports SSD caching by default, last time I checked, No.

Once costs are factored in, software caching is unlikely to be cost effective. If intent on software caching, you can see if FancyCache is of any interest.

Yeah, I would've thought so. The more I try to work with this damned motherboard, the more I hate it. That software isn't what I'm looking for, but thanks.

(unrelated) Since your here and maybe know stuff about SSD caching; 1. Any good Mini-ITX motherboards that support it (Maximus VII Impact?) 2. Is there any support for over 60Gb of cache yet?

Yeah, I've looked at that. I was just thinking that it might not be compatible with my mobo.
