View Full Version : SSD + turbo memory = Wiper not working?
09-17-2009, 01:48 PM
hey i just got my SSD and just reinstalled my turbo memory to help boot the computer up quicker and for page memory since on a SSD u don't want that.
but i just realized because i installed turbo memory, the wiper isn't working now like it was before. Anyone have some suggestions if its that or something else?

From what I understand, because it's the cache for the hard drive. I assume the wiper tool is seeing the cache as the "front end" of the SSD drive and determining it's not compatible.
It was really designed for platter HDDs, not SSDs, considering Turbo Memory and an SSD are practically the same thing.
For the record I moved my page file all around (short of a RAM Drive), turned it off, this that and the other, but the best performance I get is from keeping it right where it is on the C: drive.
You're really taking this performance non-sense to a new level, you're going to soup it up right out of it's performance. Less is more, K.I.S.S.: Keep It Simple, Silly.

so i should just uninstall turbo memory? and forget about the 2gb of storage for my background programs over the wiper? or is the wiper not important till the drive slows down?

also is there a way i can tweak it so it doesn't read the turbo boost and the wiper finds my drive? im a little lost on why it doesn't see the drive still

Did you notice any gains in performance with Turbo Memory installed?
I would uninstall it, put the page file on the SSD and be done with it.
Considering you can wipe the drive at any time, you can write the love right out of it.
No, you probably can't remove the turbo memory from the process.
The wiper tool can't see the SSD because TM creates an artificial cache between the RAM and the SSD.
RAM -> Turbo Memory (Tool checks compatibility and stops) -> SSD (with already has an onboard cache!)

well i did see increased start-up time over the SSD with them working together
but i guess if i gotta wipe it so often i guess i have to, how often should i wipe u think? whats ur suggestions?
o yeah should i keep pagefiling on or off? its like 4gb if i uninstall turbo memory
09-17-2009, 05:06 PM
Once a month.
Keep it on, 4gb is fine.

kk ill do it once a month and keep turbo memory on till then i guess thanks for the input

is it bad to keep pagefiling off and leting ram do the work or no?

You're on Vista, correct?
4 GB of RAM?
You could turn the PF off without a problem, as a matter of fact, try it and see what your performance is like...
I just know in XP I had better performance with it on, as XP relies on the PF heavily.

yeah 4GB of DDR3 and it is pretty damn fast most of the time i'm always under 2gb used. Thanks for the suggestion i will do that. I have one more question should i use 1gb of ramdisk like iv seen on those tweeks for FF and IE? and for readyboost?
09-18-2009, 12:19 PM
"use 1gb of ramdisk"
Unnecessary. Wiper solves any problems having the cache on the SSD might create.
Readyboost is the same thing as your Turbo Memory. Unnecessary, developed for platter HDDs.

Earls got any other suggestions or tweaks for me? to improve performance and stability. Thanks for all the help

i am running as ACHI atm idk how to really Switch it around because im using a Sager here is my computer all i added was a 2.8 ghz p9700 processor to it. and 4gb of DDR3
its an awesome computer im just new to the way the BIOS and drivers are like so if u got any tweaks for it in mind let me know.

I think you're good to go, boss man. I'd just sit back, relax, and enjoy the speed and efficiency of your SSD!

will do thanks earls
