Question re: Marx's theory of historical materialism?

According to some sources, Marx argued that the mechanism of social change was the contradiction between the material forces of production and the relations of production, whilst elsewhere it is argued that Marx saw social change as arising from the conflicting interests of different social classes. My question is, assuming that Marx stated that both of these contradictions brought about social change, what is the relationship between class conflict and the conflict between relations and forces of production?
