    Ryo got a reaction from vapedrib in should i try to put my older asus board back into service   
    I have an Asus k8n-DL motherboard with 2 opteron 265 1.8ghz dual core cpu but itonly has 1.8gb ram and ddr 1 ram is getting hard to find. my ? is should I try rebuilding it or start over with something newer as a single chip solution.

    hey just curious what your take is on the xeon E3-1231-v3... thinking about that or the i5-4690k as my cpu but xeon has hyperthreading... and again do u think wd red drives are fast enough to run games on?

    Automatically? No, not really. 
     
    However, I do have a setup like this. Specifically, I have two SSDs, and a single HDD. 
    One SSD for the system (it's an M.2) and a 2.5" SSD, and only the 2.5" SSD is part of the pool.
     
    I use the "Drive Usage Limiter" to only allow duplicated data on the SSD, and then enable duplication for the games that I want on the SSD.  
     
    This isn't automated, but it keeps the contents on the SSD and stored on the HDD.  And once you no longer want to play them, you can disable duplication and they'll be removed from the SSD.

    Honestly, if you have 2 SSD drives.... what I'd recommend doing is setting one as the system drive (not RAIDed), and use the other for the Steam library. That way, you're splitting the IO between the systems.  It may not be strictly necessary due to the SSD's speed and IOPS (I/O Operations Per Second).   But it it may, depending on the load, and at the very least, if you have to wipe the system, your steam library is intact. 
     
     
    Additionally, you don't have to worry about degraded performance due to a lack of properly TRIM support. 
     
    And you could absolutely pool the secondary disk for the steam library. It's not a bad idea, especially if you have a large library.
