I know what you're asking.. but I don't know if I can find an answer better than this:

RAM disk - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
List of RAM disk software - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The topic is relatively new to me

2600k 16GB RAM 120GB SSD 4TB HDD GTX 1080
15" Retina MBP || 64GB Nexus 6P || 64GB iPad Air 2
Steel Band Huawei Watch || Sony RX100 IV Camera

interesting concept.

install ram disk software.
create and mount a ramdisk so it shows as a drive on your pc.
install game to ramdisk by setting the destination folder to the ramdisk.

its worth a shot. i wouldnt be surprised if the ramdisk software was buggy tho. maybe worth paying some money for a professional version.
