iolo to Release 64-bit Compatible System Mechanic
 
iolo technologies, maker of System Mechanic, the #1 best-selling PC tune-up utility, today announced its flagship product will now be 64-bit compatible. System Mechanic has thus become the first complete PC tune-up product compatible with 64-bit computers on the market.

“Earlier this year relatively few users were buying 64-bit systems. That situation has changed dramatically in the recent months, as our customers have started voicing demand for a 64-bit-compatible version of their favourite product,” said JJ Schoch, iolo’s VP of marketing. “iolo has a history of innovation and leadership in the PC tune-up space and once again, we wanted to be the first to offer our 21 million users around the world just what they need to keep their new 64-bit PCs functioning in top condition.”

iolo technologies has been at the helm of the PC tune-up industry for 10 years now. During those 10 years and in eight versions, System Mechanic was repeatedly first-to-market with new features. In 2002 it was officially endorsed by the Microsoft Logo program.

In 2006 it became one of the very first software programs to have Windows Vista compatibility and in 2008 it leads the industry with its 64-bit compatibility. This popular program includes more than 40 different PC tune-up tools that fix computer problems, restore like-new performance, and maintain overall reliability. The software is suitable for both PC novices and experts alike.

The 64-bit compatibility will be offered in System Mechanic’s upcoming 8.5 version, to be released this month. The remaining iolo products, including iolo’s security software, DriveScrubber, the #1 best-selling secure data removal tool, and Search & Recover, the popular data recovery program, will all offer 64-bit compatibility in early 2009.

Go for the HIS, the cooler is a fantastic piece of kit and will easily allow maximum CCC overclocks with no troubles.:)

Agreed with above. The HIS has an awesome cooler and is a very nice card. Funnily enough there is a review going live tomorrow that you _might_ be interested in :)

Another thing - if I get a normal HIS 4850 Turbo (NOT TURBOX)

Can I overclock it to match the clockings of the TurboX with any known tools (seems to be a dumb question, but I have never overclocked Graphics Cards)

The ATI CCC (Catalyst Control Center) is normally installed with the drivers and has a nice and easy overclock facility. It should easily be able to get you the TurboX speeds and beyond tbh

In that case I'll will get the Turbo version. That way I can spend that £20 on something else ;)

No matter wich one of both u will get, u will be abble to OC !
I recently put a new sys for someone with a Gainward 4850 and could OC v easy !
I also have in my sys a Asus 4850 and here is the room much bigger for OC ! I could easely OC like this gpu 625/695 gddr 993/1110 with no problems what so ever !
Both of this cards i've worked r stock clocks. Buth the Gainward is with cooler, wich u get on GS and run much cooler and also quieter than stock cooling .

go for the IceQ version, it's cooler.. and healthier (for your system). :)
(+) significantly cooler & relatively quiet (larger fan but lower speed than stock), it blows hot air directly outside the case.
(-) takes 2 slots, make sure the next slot is vacant

The Gainward has an exhaust too and its clocked higher. I still can't decide on which I should get. The TurboX is clocked lower compared to the the Gainward so I'm thinking to get that instead.
