should I upgrade my gaming pc? - Page 5

post #41 of 65
There was a recent thread trashing the BX200, i'm not sure exactly why. I think the 200 is the first model to use some newer less expensive tech.

The BX100 is a little more expensive, but that might be a safer bet?

Thanks for pointing that out. I only check up on SSD when I need to get one and want a different model than already in a system. Crucial have always been good but it does seem the BX200 is not up to their usual standards.
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/crucial-bx200-ssd,4351-6.html

Everybody I know who has upgraded to SSD for os, software and most often assessed files has nothing but praise for how much faster then can load and do things now compared to before. Add to that they make almost no heat and no noise.

Edit:
I did some searching about the BX200 and it seems the only 'problem' is it's not as fast as others. It is a budget SSD so of course it's not gong to be as fast. While X58 has good SATA 2, it's SATA 3 is not good at all. End of the day the SSD will be running o SATA 2 so high read / write scores are a mute issue .

If there's no real "problem" besides being a little slower, i think you're very right about it being a good fit for sata2 ports! The price is certainly nice and low for those drives. It'd be a good drive from my old p55 rig that I've given away, i'll have to pass that info along to the new owner.

Hey MadjinnSayan, I appreciate your feedback, and your enthusiasm, but I'm not sure 2 gtx 980 ti is the right choice for me. I'm sure it's a huge boost from a single gtx980, but if that will give me a boost from 60 fps to let's say 120 fps, even though it's huge, it's irrelevant for me. I'm not going dual screen or 4k, I just want to play for another couple years maybe with this rig, but I want to be able to do the other stuff I mentioned as well, so I might need extra processing power, beyond my i7. also, the SSD is the only thing I was sure I'm buying from the beggining, it's absurd that I still don't have one.

I'm going for an EVGA gtx 980, wich I found for less than $500 (while the TI was about $630, so it's a huge difference for me), a refurbished xeon x5670 for $129, (the one for 8$8 pontiac pointed was sold) and a sandisk 240gb ssd for $64.99. it's way below $1000, and that's great, I'll see how the system behaves, and then I'll figure out wich case and cooling I need.

Ok lad, i just stated what i would do with same needs as you had, now if you're satisfied i cant be more myself.

I would not recommend going CLC. You can get as good or better cooling at much lower noise levels and much cheaper costs with air. Here is a current thread about why not to go CLC. http://www.overclock.net/t/1590547/why-you-should-probably-not-buy-a-clc-cooler/0_20

It make no sense to me to spend almsot twice as much for a CLC on CPU making 150-200w of heat when overclocked when when a $50.00 air cooler will do the job just as well with less noise and way more reliability

yeah, I didn't want to go clc either, I just thought water cooling was my only option if I wanted to get stable 4.0ghz.

I have a hyper 212+ with 2 fans in push/pull config, my i7-930 is at stock clock speed, and I still get to 78ºc after 15min of max load testing. I can't say this for sure, because I think I threw away my stock cooler, but I'd say it's temp would be lower in stock, and the 212 was highly recommended to me at the time I bought it.

CPU temps rising for more than 5 minutes means case is not supplying CPU cooler with enough cool air and cooler intake is being forced to use already heated air. Every degree hotter cooler intake is translates into a degree hotter CPU is.

Here is graph of stress runs of mine. Notice the max heat level is in less than 3 minutes.
