I have SATA II on my laptop and got a huge performance boost over a 7200 HDD. I have two of them at the same time, so I am not losing all the space for just speed.
I removed my comment cause the person you were referring to did have a SATA3 board, so it was irrelevant unless you were being very general. My bad. :d
I think Rebel is saying that buying a SATA2 SSD limits you to 250/250, which is excellent, but because tech is moving so quickly, you can spend $10-20 more and get a SATA3 SSD, which is a massive improvement over that. And if you put a good SATA3 SSD with SATA2 ports, you're wasting a lot of money. I personally haven't gotten an SSD for this reason.
@music_man, does the 94C change from like boot up to load? Download a temp monitoring program. If not, it could be a faulty sensor. If yes, then I would make sure I seated the heatsink properly, and spread the thermal paste evenly. 94C is way too high if you have a big heatsink.
