SSD Cache Drive on Motherboard

By Aboonah ·
Tags: Windows, Hardware
I noticed that my workstation has a Drive "X" which is identified by Disk Management as "CPU Cache Drive (X:). It shows up as Disk 2 with 111.79 GB NTFS. It's an mSATA OCZ-NOCTI drive in a slot on the MB next to the CPU.

The C: boot drive is a Samsung 260G SSD, but most of the programs are installed on a different drive to save space on C:

If the OCZ is supposed to be acting as a cache drive, how can I know that it's doing so? The system speed is faster since the C: hard-drive was replaced with the SSD... So I just wonder what the msata OCZ drive is doing.
