I'm considering a RAID 0 setup with an SSD cache drive. Will I see a noticeable difference in speed with the SSD cache drive, will this even work?

No I will not install the OS on the SSD. I'd prefer to avoid micro management, I need the space of my spinners.

How are you planning on using the SSD as a cache? Intel RST? Or some other solution? –  ernie Jan 15 '13 at 17:21
    
Planning on using Crucial's Adrenaline ssd cache with dataplex software. –  UzumakiDev Jan 15 '13 at 17:23
    
While I haven't used dataplex personally, this has some limitations. According to the system requirements, you have to use MBR if you're making the boot drive the target, meaning you can't use UEFI and GPT partitions, it's Win7 only, etc. –  ernie Jan 15 '13 at 17:44
