I have a new iMac 5K with 32GB Ram/ 4GHz Quad core i7. What are the recommended settings in preferences to maximize performance for this system? I use a Thunderbolt drive for the media, so where should I put the folder for the DISK CACHE? Should the CONFORMED MEDIA AND CACHE stay in the default folder? How should the RAM be allocated?
If anyone has experience with this system and how best to maximize performance, I would appreciate your input.
Put the disk cache on your fastest disk, preferably an internal SSD.
