i5-3570k
Hyper 212+ with push pull setup
ASRock Extreme 4 z77
8g crucial ballistix ram
5 case fans ( 3 intake, 2 exhaust )
EVGA gtx 660 Ti FTW signature 2
1t HDD
120 g solid state
Windows 7 home premium
CM storm scout 1


Should I get another 660 Ti for SLI?

Maybe a corsair H80i?

8g more of RAM?

I am just curious as to what someone else would upgrade next.

What is the current config not doing for you?

Heat?
Performance?
Noise?

I woul like to clock it higher than 4.4 to get max performance in a 25 man raid in world of Warcraft. At the moment I'm at 200+ fps in the open world but in a 25 man raid its running around 35-42 fps with settings on ultra and shadows turned off.

Turn down spell effects, zoom out. Trust me going higher on your CPU wont do much. Try overclocking your gpu some. More ram won't help.

660 Ti in SLI would be overkill I'm assuming

Almost any recent gpu in sli/crossfire is overkill.

My friend rocks gtx 560ti's in SLI and that is complete overkill.

Assuming your just after gaming performance, there's not much you can do to that rig other than getting a better graphics card, and the 660Ti isnt exactly low end either.

You could overclock the components a bit more, which would require better cooling on the CPU's behalf. IMO mid-range cooling isnt worth it so to upgrade from a 212+, I suggest you go straight to a Noctua NH-D14.
Custom water is also a possibility, but is in no way required to hit good overclocks.
