HotHardware looks at the PNY
XLR8 8800GTX OC videocard. Hardware Logic plays around with the Thermalright
HR-03 Plus VGA cooler. TweakTown wraps things up with its take on the HighPoint
RocketRAID 2314 eSATA controller.
ICH9 is Intels latest update to the southbridge, sporting six SATA
ports with the ability to use port multipliers if motherboard vendors wish to.
This is especially helpful if you want to run eSATA and internal SATA off the
existing six ports. While southbridge SATA controllers have advanced, we cant
forget add-on cards. When you run out of ports on your board, its time
to slap in an extra card with SATA, and one of the biggest players is HighPoint.
