Custom graphics card maker XFX has sent out its new custom designed Radeon HD 6850 card to retailers. Based on the AMD Radeon HD 6850 reference design, the new card boasts of a custom dual-slot cooler for extra efficient cooling.

The new Radeon HD 6850 is the third card from XFX based on this reference design. The major change in this card is that it has been given a non-reference dual fan cooler, which features two fans and two copper heatpipes.
No changes have been made to the reference card clocks, so the new XFX card has the GPU running at 775 MHz and the memory at 4000 MHz. It still comes with 960 Stream processors and has 1GB of GDDR5 memory with a 256-bit interface. Of course, with the custom cooler on board, chances are that the card is more than capable of handling of bit of tweaking and overclocking. Other features include dual-DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort outputs.

The card has already reached retailers and can be found carrying a price tag of $195.

See? Now maybe you can understand why I told you not to sell it.

On a NH14 4.5 should be a breeze.

4.5ghz only needed vcore 1.38v. That probably wouldn't even trouble the NH14.

Yeah. Thing is right now that E8600 is like, 'free power'. It's bought, paid for and doing nothing. All you need to reach is the 60 FPS cap on a game and your'e sorted so I just don't see the reasoning behind throwing away a very decent chip with massive OC potential for say an I3/5 which at those clocks (4.5ghz) wouldn't make a massive difference any way.

Intel's best moment was the core 2 duo. That was what put AMD right on the backfoot.

I mean at the end of the day he might aswell at least try it and see what occurs before spending more. He has an unbelievably good motherboard too (MSI P7N diamond quad PCIE ETC) that's spanking new in the box, 4gb of Patriot Viper Extreme 1066 DDR2 and so on..

You are our wise one. No doubt we will be returning to this thread for help and advice real soon :D
