Sure.

That corsair was giving me /terrible/ write performance, pulled the
intel SSD out of my other machine (unregistered the cache from the
backing device and attached the new SSD all without unmounting the
filesystem :)

Write performance with the intel is not /awesome/, but much more
reasonable:

haven't seen bio_insert() show up that high in a profile before, wonder
what's up with that..

Reran the random read benchmark with the intel:

Basically, whatever hardware you have bcache will easily max it out.
