    H55 is not a good cooler, you are better off with big air (quieter and should cost less, while mantaining roughly same performance).

    120Gb SSD is not big enough, either save up for 250gb or don''t bother. This is my personal opinion, after fighting to keep my harddisk under 100gb for weeks (in preparation of cheaping out) I think its not worth my time anymore.

    How can you see what I posted even tho I can't? :confused:

    I guess I will have to look for other cooler.
    Oh and right now I am using two HDDs and i have one for windows programs that I use most that HDD is always below 150gb so I think i'm good.

    Edit I dont really want to bother the admin if I don't need to.

    Anti spam filter flagging you up. Trying to fix it. If everything goes well I think we will be back to normal in a few hours.

    Also, SSDs like HDDs slow down as you fill the drive up, so ideally you want to keep it under 100Gb.

    Your posts are ending up in the moderation queue because the system thinks you are a spammer. So your posts need to be manually approved. This should be fixed now that you have more posts.

    Thanks it seems to be fixed now. I edited my first post and there you can find the info.

    And I don't really mind waiting a bit longer. I just want to have a bit of space to install the programs that I use all the time, but I guess I will think about getting bigger SSD.

    A lot of people successfully use 120Gb drives with no problems, as long as you are comfortable with the constraint, go ahead with 120Gb. After all, you have a second drive if you overspill.

    Just a few years ago everyone was running 64GB SSDs and that was the way to do it.

    I need to get with the times, I don't own any on my 3 machines.
