Sapphire Vapor-X HD 4890 1GB OC

Is there a way to tell if the Sapphire Vapor-X 4890 I was sold is the OC version without installing it? Would it say on the box? I think I might have been sold a non over clocked version, even thought I payed for, and my invoice clearly says it should be the OC'ed version.

  1. ussually the back should say the clock speed, from there you can compare it to the normal speeds of a 4890.

    Also does your box look like these?

  2. Unfortunately I can't find a reference to the clock speed anywhere on the packaging. The box does look like those, it actual looks like this:

    One of the images of the OC version from the Sappire website has a 'Overclock' sticker over the Vapor-X logo, but the rest of the images don't.

    I'm not sure if all the OC versions would have that sticker or not? I guess the only way I will be able to tell is to plug it in?
  3. Yeah, I've had box packaging be completely wrong before but had the right chip underneath. Is there a manufacturer part number on the box?
  4. These are the numbers that are on the box:
    VAPOR-X HD4890 1G GDDR5 PCI-E HDMI / DP / DVI-I/ VGA
    PN 288-1E115-020SA
    SKU# 11150-05-41R
  5. Yea, even if it doesnt have the OC it can be returned or sent back to sapphire as an RMA. Anyways it's a vapor X card, it'll overclock to around the same regardless.

    Every site I look at that SKU refers to the OC version. The other has a different SKU. So I think they got you the right one but they forgot the sticker.
  7. That's a relief. Thank you very much for your help everyone.
