SAPPHIRE Set to Turn your Whole System TOXIC

HD 2900 XT TOXIC features Modular Watercooling

Building on the success of its TOXIC range of water cooled graphics solutions, industry leader SAPPHIRE Technology is set to launch its fastest graphics product yet – the exciting new SAPPHIRE HD 2900 XT TOXIC! The SAPPHIRE HD2900 XT TOXIC features the latest unified shader architecture with 320 shaders, and the world’s first 512-bit memory bus delivering over 475 GigaFLOPS performance and 106 GB/sec memory bandwidth. Developed to natively support the latest applications using Microsoft DX 10™ and Shader model 4.0, for a whole new generation of performance, this series brings new meaning to the Windows Vista™ Premium Experience.

The SAPPHIRE HD 2900 XT series also incorporates the latest ATI Avivo™ HD Technology for enhanced Video display as well as hardware accelerated decoding of Blu-ray™ and HD DVD content. Two dual link DVI outputs are provided and the system is CrossFire™ Multi-GPU Ready. HDMI users are supported with another new feature that multi-channel 5.1 Audio is integrated on board with the graphics output to provide true audio and video output via an HDMI adapter for direct connection of an HDMI ready TV.

Offering enthusiasts a simplified path to a faster, quieter system, the new SAPPHIRE HD2900 XT TOXIC features a drive-bay mounted water cooling system with integrated reservoir, pump and radiator system, efficient enough to cool not just the graphics card, but optionally a CrossFire pair of SAPPHIRE HD 2900 XT cards, the system CPU or other components. In the TOXIC edition, the standard SAPPHIRE HD 2900 XT Engine clocks of 750 MHz can be enhanced by over 15% and Memory speeds increased significantly above the standard 1650 MHz.

SAPPHIRE is already shipping standard editions of its HD2900 XT – and is expected to announce other family members in the coming weeks.

Im looking to RAID my 2 HDD's together. i have a WD raptor and a Seagate barracuda, just wondering if this is possible.. And how ide go about doing it.. Or a guide lol.

tbh i think the 2 HD's have to be the same. Ive got 2 WD 250GB's in Raid 0 but their both the exact same HD.

Some raid controllers want exactly the same models or they won`t allow raid-0.

Some raid controllers just want same size to do raid-0.

Some will only allow JBOD if there`s any differences in the drives.

Some only allow raid over 2 paired SATA sockets.

Some raid controllers will take 2 drives of any kind and allow u to setup whatever the heck u choose.

Bare in mind tho, whichever drives u choose that are unmatched size wize, the raid will be 2x the lowest size. So if u`r raptor is 74g and the barracuda 200g, u`ll end up with a 2x74g raid.

you can create a software LVM group - no size equality reqd

in windows

Control Panel >> Administrative tools >> Computer Management >> Disk Management

right click ur disks >> Convert to Dynamic Disk then
Rclick the partition u wish to extend and select extend (u may need to have the nu disk as a non partitioned dynamic disk)

this is JBOD raid it offers no performance improvements just stitches up the space to look like 1 big drive thats will only be visible in win2K or better ... i u want linux instructions ill post em

I did my raid simply by following the motherboard manual (i was after a clean setup and I used my old hdd as an external)

Make sure you backup in raid0 (y)
