suggestions on SSD and HSF

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hello everyone. i believe my system specs are in my profile. i have maxed out every part of my pc that i can. the last few items of note are to get a decent aftermarket HSF for my q9650. and swap out the seagate 1tb drive to a SSD. i really cant afford a 1tb SSD so i was thinking i would go with a 512 more or less and just be selective as to what programs i install. i want to overclock my cpu to 4 ghz. i have easily obtained 3.6 simply by changing the fsb speed in the bios to 400. by default it runs the ram at 5-5-5 and 333mhz speed because the cpu runs at 333. ofcourse i manually set the pcie lane at 100. problem is the stock HSF is crap and when oc'ed to 3.6 my idle temps are 51°C and on full load with prime95 it immediately ramps up to 80°C!!! so my questions are, with my budget for HSF at 30-50 dollars, what is the best HSF? i know that a watercooled system would give me a better overclock and probably better temps. would a 120mm closed loop be better than an aircooled system? for 60 i could get one off newegg but if i go for a lil over 100 dollars i could get a 240mm. the watercooled system would also elimnate the clearance problem i might run into. i am usin all four slots for ram and would not consider removing 2. are these smaller single radiator solutions worth it?
secondly i could go for a second identical SSD later on and wipe the system and run them in raid 0. would, by swapping out the HDD for a SSD be a dramatic upgrade like people say? consider that with the exception of the most newest AAA titles im able to max out all video settings for my games. there are a few new titles that require me to lower my settings to just "high" or medium and AA and AF turned off. personnally i am satisfied with 30 fps. having 100+fps is great but if i get fluid motion and no stuttering in my games im happy with 30+.
also, if i was to go from HDD to SSD raid 0, will it be that much more amazing than a single SSD?

so all thats left to upgrade is a HSF and SSD or two. i really cant afford or justify building a new system right now. im poor. my pc serves me quite well as is and i can always clock my ram at its proper speed, overclock my cpu and even overclock my R9 270. if im going to build a new system then im going ALL OUT and getting the very best. probably 1500 dollars plus.
