ATI XFX HD 5850 Cooler question Tags: Graphics Cards Cooling Graphics Last response: August 17, 2010 3:07 AM in Graphics & Displays Share puglet August 16, 2010 1:23:37 AM My new XFX 5850 arrived today and I was rather dissapointed when unboxing it to see it look like this: Is there any reason mine is all stripped down whereas 99% of images on the internet, shops, reviews, videos etc show the good looking beafy version? I was expecting to get this: What's the difference? Which is better? Why is there a difference? Is one a newer/older model etc? Obviously they will perform the same, I'm just a bit of a sucker for a good looking computer and what I got is not a good looking card. Thanks.

If you can get a refund, do so - the stock cooler in the 2nd picture and this version: are much better than that egg cooler.
