XFX First to Market with 1GHz GPU?Black Edition 4890
With Sapphire's 4890 Atomic Edition yet to be released, it is looking increasingly likely that the nippy XFX 4890 Black Edition Graphics Card will be the first 1GHz GPU to market. The 1GHz stock clocked GPU appeared for pre-order on the OverclockersUK website yesterday afternoon claiming to be an OcUK exclusive. The card is listed at £227.99 (incl. VAT) and is expected to arrive on Wednesday.
Sporting a black PCB and Red DVI ports the XFX Black Edition ditches the reference traits aside for a darker and dare I say sexier styling. The heatsink appears to be identical to that of the reference design, except for the Black Edition sticker branding the shroud.
Being first to market with such a card will pay dividends to whoever succeeds in doing so, as enthusiasts worldwide are waiting to pull the trigger on these delightfully fast graphics cards.

Hi everyone,

I currently bagged a cheap deal on eBay for a new Xigmatek HDT-SD964 for my new spare build. I'm wondering if anyone knows where I can get an extra identical fan that is bundled with the CPU cooler, as I want to have a push-pull setup, and also where I can find the rubber fan mounts, as I seem to be 2 short (If I go ahead with the push-pull). I can't find much information about the fan, it only tells me the dimensions, CFM, noise level and that it's a 4-pin PWM connector. Can't seem to find any model number.

Cheers in advance

EDIT - Link to a picture of the mounts here
