    Default Questions about Drive Coolers

    Hey All:

    This is my first post. And I am building a new monster system, however I have a question on Drive Coolers. Since Boards are now coming with Onboard SATA-II that has a max peak bandwidth of 300 Mb/S. I am wanting a drive cooler that will be able to keep that bandwidth. I have not seen any Drive coolers that fit the bill.

    Has anyone seen any Drive coolers that will fit the bill? if so can you post a link?

    So I guess my question is... I saw this Drive cooler located here http://www.vantecusa.com/product-storage.html#

    the model number is MRK200ST-BK By Vantec

    If I go with this Drive cooler Will my bandwidth be cut to a 150 Mb/s? or will it remain at 300 Mb/s?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Regards smp-freak

    Welcome to the forums.

    The IcyDock MB122 and MB452 support SATA 1.0/2.0 -- http://www.phoronix.com/vr.php?view=7098

    Alternatively, if you are worried about the HDD cooler limiting your transfer speeds, you could go with such a cooler that doesn't use an intermediary SATA connection. An example would be the Scythe SBX-1000 ( http://www.scythe-usa.com/product/hdd/001/index.html ), which would allow a direct Serial ATA connection to the drive from the motherboard.

    $120 USD is what I am seeing the MB454 sell for.

    I have sent off a message to my IcyDock contact, so hopefully he will post on here some places in Canada where you can purchase these products.

    Default Thanks Michael!

    I think I just found my new Linux Hardware home.

    I have read many articles that you guys have put out. you do a great job.

    Is this site related to linuxhardware.org by chance?

    I have talked with Kris Kersey (Augustus) in the past, but there is no direct relations between LinuxHardware.org and Phoronix other than both sites cover similar interests. Though I am not too sure off hand why LinuxHardware.org hasn't pushed out any new content in quite a while.
