i am looking a hard drive to get that will be just as fast as using a black caviar 6gb/s. i dont want to get that drive because the price of them went up alot... so i was looking for another 1tb drive (cost effective) + a ssd i already have and use ssd caching.

7200.12 means 7200 rpm 12th generation

Ya want something faster, ya can grab a Barracuda XT 3GB but that performance comes at a hi price tag

Finally, another feature of a Z68 chipset is known as SSD caching which is where it allows the use of a small (say 10 or 20 GB) Solid state hard drive to act as a cache for a larger ‘traditional’ hard disk. If you are already planning the use of a Solid State drive this feature is redundant.
