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

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.

I know ASUS over clocked it, but doesn't the Vapor-X have better cooling features?

I personally never have cooling issues in my 1200 case, what case do you have?

Also Raedeons do very well on heat, its the new Nvidia 470/480 that are toaster ovens.

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)

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.
