Netherland-based graphics card manufacturer Club 3D today announced two new factory overclocked graphics cards in the form of the Club 3D Radeon HD 5870 and 5850 Overclocked Editions. According to the manufacturer, these special edition cards take the performance of the 5000 graphics cards series to a whole new level.

Club 3D has equipped the Overclocked Edition 5870 graphics card with 1024MB of super fast GDDR5 memory. The card has been factory overclocked to 875MHz core speed and 4900MHz memory speed. The Radeon HD 5850 card on the other hand features a 760MHz core speed with a 4200MHz memory speed. While the 5870 comes with 1600 stream processors, the 5850 has 1440 stream processors.

To ensure low noise levels despite the overclocking, Club 3D has installed a 4-Heatpipe custom cooling apparatus on both cards combined with an ultra-quiet 90mm fan. This keeps the cards cooler and quieter than their reference versions even when running the most demanding applications and games.

The appeal of the cards has been further enhanced by bundling them with the Colin McRae: DiRT 2 racing game. This allows users to not just get the latest Colin McRae game for free but also introduces them to the special enhancements and realism that Direct X 11 brings to gaming. Clubbed with the built-in ATI Eyefinity Technology that allows them to use up to three displays, the card and the game make for an amazing bundle.

Both cards have already hit retailers and are priced at $594 for the Club 3D HD 5870 OC Edition and $445 for the Club 3D HD 5850 OC Edition.

ok so i wanted to start over with my harddrives and create 2 raids. so i wiped out my harddrives and went to make the raids and i am getting some problems. i wanted to make 1 raid for my games and os drives which is a 300gb raptor and a 74gb raptor. so i started to make it and for the capacity it automatically puts 138gb. when i try to increase it since i have lots more space on these drives it says it doesnt have that capacity. what do i do.

05-02-2010, 17:17:04

sounds like its just takin 74gb off ur 300gb raptor to match the 74gb raptor cause my raid0 has 2 x 74gb raptors and thats 138gb, not sure how u would go about it maybe it will only give u the full capacity if u have identical drives capacity wise

05-02-2010, 17:19:13

yea thats wack. haha i wonder if i went through with creating it at 138gb i can partition the rest of the 300gb drive or if it will show up as unallocated space.

05-02-2010, 17:27:52

right just talked to a mate and he said only use identical drives with one being sata1 and the other being sata 2 its just gonna have problems and break something

05-02-2010, 17:35:32

damn alright. haha wish i would have know this before deleting everything off my drives. haha so they will have problems if the drives are no identical?

05-02-2010, 17:43:09

yeah u might end up breaking them so thats not good! you could always just look for another 300gb or 74gb and u will be sorted :)

06-02-2010, 19:04:22

so i ended up just reinstalling everything without the raid so i didnt run into any problems. so i will wait til i either get another 300gb hd or 74gb hd. this time though i am using my 74gb raptor just for my o/s and my 300gb just for games.

06-02-2010, 19:05:52

yeah pick up another 74gb man ya can get them for about £30-40 these days and then u can sort yourself out with raid0 goodies :)

06-02-2010, 19:51:02
