I have solved the problem with uninstalling and reinstalling the related software.
Please have a look the final score
and here is the previous score (which momentum cache was passive)
as conclusion there are big differences between scores . Now the issue is from to where we gain this difference ? From the Ram ?
When this is active , which compenents will be poor in this case?

Yeah, Momentum cache is a RAM cache. If you benchmark using it, you are basically benchmarking your RAM - not the drive.
The downsides of using it are:
It uses up RAM - this shouldn't be an issue since it ought to free up the RAM if needed
Like any cache, it's only going to provide a benefit if the data you want is in the cache
As mentioned in the battery warnings, if you have a power cut without battery backup (or a crash needing a restart of the PC) then you may lose data that you thought was saved, but was actually only in the cache.

It's personal preference really. I don't use it myself.

Well, as it says in the software, Crucials recommendation is that you DON'T use it without battery backup.
