Y500 HDD replace with SSD - 16GB mSATA cache SSD drive shall be removed?

Hello,

 

I have an IdeaPad Y500 and recently bought a 240GB SSD 2.5".

I want to replace the 1TB HDD 2.5" with the SSD 2.5" for better performance.

 

Now that I will have a high speed drive there is any benefit to keep the 16GB mSATA cache SSD drive?

Do I need to remove the 16GB mSATA cache SSD drive after the instalation of the 240GB SSD 2.5"?

 

Thank you.

Answer: IMO, the ssd cache is no longer needed since you already have an equal or faster ssd drive.

Answer: You may removed it or you may format it and use it as an additional data drive.
