In and of its self the Gigabyte Radeon HD 5870 Super Overclock is not the best deal out there, effectively you are paying and extra $90 for an overclock of 150MHz GPU and 50MHz on the memory, plus a proprietary cooler. thought that while that was a nice bump in speed it needed something more.  In their case that was LN cooling, which involved de-soldering and re-soldering resistors on the PCB as well as voltage tweaks.  They only did single card benchmarking with the LN and it turned out that even with the extra cooling, the card did not have that much more headroom on it. Drop by to see the full review.

“I recently received a couple treats from Gigabyte Japan, namely a pair of new Radeon HD 5870 Super Overclock or “SOC” edition video cards. These cards feature a “binned” GPU, a custom PCB with tons of high-end features, and a custom air cooler. They also come with a factory rating of 950MHz for the GPU and 1250MHz for the GDDR5 memory, a significant boost over the 850/1200MHz speed of the reference cards. I took this beast of a card, and as you might expect, I put it through its paces with a buffet of benchmarks to find the absolute limits of performance.”
