Solved 5850 Question Tags: New Build Asus Sapphire Systems Product Last response: April 28, 2010 7:29 AM in Systems Share Eg Lawns April 28, 2010 6:51:10 AM Hello, there. Hows everyone doing? Awfully late to be up, but I have a question. I have found 3 5850, and was asking for you opion on which to get. First one, Vapor-X http: //www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681410288... ASUS: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Sapphire: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Thanks for the help in advance. Cheers, Edvin More about : 5850 question cmcghee358 April 28, 2010 7:06:30 AM Looks like the Vapor-X is clocked 735 over 725 and the memory is clocked 1050 over 1000. Same manufacturer so Vapor-X is better The ASUS is clocked 765 and memory clocked 1125. ASUS is a good brand, and they were nice enough to OC it for you. Since it comes that way from the manufacturer, the OC will be warrantied. Get the ASUS hands down. m 0 l Eg Lawns April 28, 2010 7:12:00 AM I know ASUS over clocked it, but doesn't the Vapor-X have better cooling features? m 0 l Related resources Compatibility Question: 5850x2 to 770GTX upgrade - Forum GPU Upgrade Question : 650ti vs 7770(2GB) vs 5850 - Forum Asus HD 5850 power consumption question? - Forum HD5850 upgrade question - Forum Possibly a dumb question...

Also Raedeons do very well on heat, its the new Nvidia 470/480 that are toaster ovens. m 0 l Eg Lawns April 28, 2010 7:21:33 AM HAF-922 , neither do I. But with extra cooling from Vapor-X couldn't I over clock it more then the ASUS? ( I don't care about the warranty) m 0 l Best solution cmcghee358 April 28, 2010 7:25:27 AM ASUS says: OC at 765MHz, up to 20% cooler than standard 5850 /shrug Either the Vapor-X or ASUS. Whichever you want, can't make a bad descision here imo. Share Eg Lawns April 28, 2010 7:29:02 AM Best answer selected by Eg Lawns. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
