    It helps improve internet browsing speeds a bit, since I'm running a velociraptor. Also, I hear that it helps prolong your SSD's life because it doesn't need to do as many read/write operations to the SSD.

    I've noticed that it does help speed things up a bit, although it could be the placebo effect. My relatives running SSDs have reported no speed increases running the RAMDisk cache.
