How to alter the cache write policy while working with Intel X5675 series

Is there a way to alter the cache write policy while working with the Intel compiler. I discovered that the Intel Core i7 processor 1st-level cache is a write back cache.

My question is: Is there any possible way to tweak the compiler into changing the cache policy from write back to write through?

There is no way to change the policies of the cache on released processors.

Why are you interested in changing these policies? what is the objective of this experiment?
