Hello,
Sorry, I realize you are referring to the INTERNAL drive Cache & not the Controller Cache;

Well, I would be watching this thread for an answer myself !

Thanks !

hi
"Notice: (Revision) Hard Drive Write Cache (DWC) Configuration Option Available for Certain HP Smart Array SAS/SATA Controllers"

E200 does not have the DWC option for HDDs, you need another smart array controller

see this
"Drive Write Cache (DWC), which improves hard drive write performance, is available as a configuration option for drives connected to HP Smart Array P400/P400i (SA-P400/P400i), Smart Array E500 (SA-E500), and Smart Array P800 (SA-P800) Controllers running firmware version 4.06 or later."
