Yes, you are right. If the cache block size is larger than the filesystem cluster size, the sequence read/write performance will not be the best. If your RAM is sufficient and you prefer the best performance, you may just keep your current block size value.

Is there is a major performance or cache size penalty if my boot drive cluster size is 4KB, but my cache cluster size is 8KB? If so, is it easy for me to change the boot drive cluster size without reformatting it?
Not really, nope. The performance hit comes in at larger multiples I find. i.e. with 4k clusters if you use a 32k cache block, you might notice it. But not at 8k or 16k - it's pretty negligible.

Hey fellas, I would like to have some guidance and suggestions on my setup for primocache operations. Here is it as follows:

- Notebook Acer A515 41G
- CPU AMD A12 9720P
- Crucial 16GB DDR4 Memory
- Crucial 480GB SSD

Plus I have a SanDisk SSD Plus 120GB conected through a fast USB 3.1 port.

So whats could be the best usage for Primo Cache based on this scenario? Thanks in advance

Since your target drives are all SSDs, you may only use the level-1 (RAM) cache.
If your Windows OS doesn't contain any personal data and well backed-up, you may also enable Defer-Write which will increase writing performance a lot and reduce writes to SSDs.
