Is it possible to designate RAM for only "write" purposes?

If one sets up a RAM stick as temporary storage to reduce writes on a SSD (via http://goo.gl/7cem) or for any other reason, can that particular RAM stick to be utilized only
in this manner?

I've currently got 3 sticks of ram, 2 identical 2 gb sticks and a different 1 gb stick. Well due to recent adventures in overclocking i ended up removing the 1 gb stick as having it in resulted in worse benchmarks. Now, I want to know if I can stick it back in but have it only ever ID'ed by my computer as a (albeit small) hard drive. That way it won't be read as "RAM" by my PC thereby lowering benchmarks, but it can still be used to speed up applications such as firefox by storing caches to it. Let me know if this question needs clarification.
