    Question pcie DVDrw

    Considering updating my mobo to a pci-express south bridge type, and sata2 hd capable, so far i can not find a cdrw nor dvdrw (blue ray) that utalizes the pcie data transfeer instead of 2MB cache ide, scsi, usb-sata1 types.
    And noticing these drives have a tough time operating above 50 to 60*C, porting heat outside the case from the cpu and gpu is essential...

    What i want is an 8MB cache, sata2 or pcie DVDrw (2 layer for 50GB ish blue ray media.)

    There are lots of burners that utilize the SATA interface, however they will gain little to nothing from moving off of IDE. I don't know that they'd even claim to use SATA2, because it really wouldn't matter.

    I really doubt you'd ever have heat problems with a CD drive of any kind. Having the ambient temperatures necessary to stop a CD drive from working would likely mean that the CPU, GPU, and chipset have already fried.
