  1. It feels like a proper install since it's running fine, it reads all my installed games automatically, initializes without any issues and can start my games from Dimmdrive. I did reboot right after the install. Okay this is my SSD drive: Sequential Read : 449.261 MB/s Sequential Write : 429.451 MB/s Random Read 512KB : 369.819 MB/s Random Write 512KB : 100.608 MB/s Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 31.124 MB/s [ 7598.7 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 58.380 MB/s [ 14253.0 IOPS] Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 35.907 MB/s [ 8766.3 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 69.728 MB/s [ 17023.4 IOPS] Test : 1000 MB [C: 71.0% (165.1/232.5 GB)] (x2) Date : 2015/01/06 20:00:47 OS : Windows 8.1 Pro [6.3 Build 9600] (x64) And this is my HDD drive: Sequential Read : 160.088 MB/s Sequential Write : 158.085 MB/s Random Read 512KB : 35.735 MB/s Random Write 512KB : 66.057 MB/s Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 0.375 MB/s [ 91.5 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 0.932 MB/s [ 227.5 IOPS] Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 0.575 MB/s [ 140.3 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 0.897 MB/s [ 219.0 IOPS] Test : 1000 MB [D: 62.4% (1745.0/2794.4 GB)] (x2) Date : 2015/01/06 20:07:37 OS : Windows 8.1 Pro [6.3 Build 9600] (x64) This is a 3GB Dimmdrive: Sequential Read : 5169.643 MB/s Sequential Write : 7907.294 MB/s Random Read 512KB : 5055.822 MB/s Random Write 512KB : 7489.829 MB/s Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 502.443 MB/s [122666.7 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 428.169 MB/s [104533.3 IOPS] Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 935.748 MB/s [228454.0 IOPS] Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 741.317 MB/s [180985.7 IOPS] Test : 1000 MB [Z: 0.9% (26.2/3072.0 MB)] (x2) Date : 2015/01/06 20:13:43 OS : Windows 8.1 Pro [6.3 Build 9600] (x64) lol. I would say that 40x faster read/write speed SHOULD have SOME kind of notable impact on my games' loading times. What's Random Read/Write?
  2. Thank you everyone for the responses. I'd like to point out that I wrote that I have 8 GB ram and that I have tried using Drimmdrives with 5, 4 and 3 GB, depending on what game I tried to make sure that they all fit entirely on the Dimmdrive in "More Ram" mode. Here's an example: The size of the ENTIRE game "Legend of Grimrock 2" is 1,2 GB. So I took 3GB (out of my 8) to make a Dimmdrive, from which I'm running LoG2 in More Ram mode. Well, there is no difference in running that game normally and running it with Dimmdrive... There is NO difference. At all. No I don't think that was the issue I was having. I've been looking at the game files the whole time I've been using Dimmdrive to see how it was handling them, and I made sure that everything was back to normal even when the games were behaving weirdly. Both run fine again now after a game cache integrity verification through steam so that's all taken care of! Yes I thought that 5GB might have been to optimistic, but I made several tries with smaller drives too. Like in my example above here ^^^^ What do you mean? Let's say I do reserve 5GB for Dimmdrive, the OS needs 1, and I only have around 2GB left. Will those extra 2 be used at all when I run the game? Will not everything be done on the 5GB Dimmdrive? Actually, since I've only tried it with smaller games I shouldn't have to specify what files to "boost", since they ALL fit on the drive with "More RAM" mode, right?
  3. Still trying to find a single game that Dimmdrive has any kind of impact on what so ever. So far I've only tried on "smaller" games that can fully fit into my drive so I can use the More Ram option for all of them. I have 8GB RAM, so I've tried with drive sizes of 5, 4 and 3, depending on the games I've been testing. Some games are installed on my SSD and some on my HDD. I get how this works. I'm not expecting Dimmdrive to turn my PC into a monster machine, giving me better performance. I'm expecting shorter loading times whenever the games have to load something. There is literally NO decrease in loading times in any of these games: Dark Souls Titan Quest IT SWKOTOR Garry's Mod Grim Dawn Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet Legend of Grimrock 2 Nether Batman Blackgate I'm not exaggerating... There is no impact what so ever on any of the games I've tried... Here's a small bonus list of the games that "Broke" when using Dimmdrive: Titan Quest IT SWKOTOR Broke as in, they can't launch anymore now, with or without Dimmdrive. Honestly, I don't really know what I was expecting. This whole thing just felt way too good to be true. I don't suppose it's possible to get a refund?
