Hello, I was asked if the CF port in Thumpers can be accessed by the OS?
In particular, would it be a good idea to use a modern 600x CF card
(some reliable one intended for professional photography) as an L2ARC
device using this port?
I don't know about the Thumpers internal CF slot.
I can say I have tried using a fast (at the time, this was about 3 years
ago) CF card via a CF to IDE adaptor before and it turned out to be a
really bad idea because the spinning rust disk (which was SATA) was
actually faster to access. Same went for USB to CF adaptors at the time
