I dont know what to chose , between Sapphire HD5770 and Sapphire HD5770 Vapor-X
My cpu is : Core2Duo E7500 , 4 gb ram DDR2 800 MHz , MB: ASRock P5B Pro ..

Help me please , i saw the reference one Overclocks better , but with my cpu i dont know if i will benefit from it
And Vapor-X is cooler and less noise
Im'a confused :sweat:  )

Need some Help) :D

Not true, Vapor-x is made for overclocking...

there are 4 different versions of the sapphire 5770 :

The only difference in all 4 is the cooling/heatsinks, the vapor-x should run a bit cooler but as far as overclocking goes there wont be much of a difference. The problem with these cards is the fact that you are limited on the OC because you have no voltage control whatsoever.

There it's five versions of Sapphire HD5770 and core on Vapor-x is on 860Mhz default...

Vapor X runs cooler thanks to a better and bigger Fan and placed in the center of Card

I guess if we nitpick then yes there are 5 versions but that's not the point. The vapor-x is factory overclocked but that does not mean it will clock higher than the rest.

It's not about fan and position....

Vapor Chamber Technology is based on the same principles as heatpipe technology. A liquid coolant is vaporised at a hot surface, the resulting vapor is condensed at a cold surface then the liquid is returned to the hot surface. The recirculation process is controlled by a wick system.

Sapphire Vapor-X flattens the whole system into a slim chamber - which in the graphics application is mounted in contact with the surface of the graphics chip.

Actually, the coolant is water – but because the chamber is evacuated to a very low pressure, the vaporisation process occurs at a much lower temperature than normal boiling point. The complex wick arrangement inside the module controls the flow of water and water vapour so that the system can be used in any orientation.

Have 5 series but four with 1gb ram mem and one with 512 ram mem... Actually, yes 4 series...

The one that has the most reviews is the REV.1 version and the other is the REV.2. Basically the same card.
