But in reality, whats the difference between random reads at 355 MB/s versus 371 MB/s - kind of like . into the wind really........................................

I forgot where I go to access Superfetch options.


For Superfetch only there are two options;


In the Services menu or via a direct registry edit. However, for prefetch you can enable/disable via the registry.


To disable Superfetch using the Services menu


In the Win7 quick search box, type "services.msc" without the quotation marks

Scroll down to Superfetch and enable or disable


Via the registry editor;

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters\EnableSuperfetch

Edit the DWORD (in hexadecimal)


If you wish to modify the Prefetch settings;


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PrefetchParameters\EnablePrefetcher

Edit the DWORD (in hexadecimal)


The hexadecimal values you can choose from for both Superfetch and Prefetch are;


0: Disable SuperFetch

1: Cache applications only

2: Cache boot files only

3: Cache everything (default)
