In the sapphire case I would have no problems to do overclocking so dont cover that please.

Would be great to hear from the owners of these respective cards!

Thanks for help,

  1. What res are you gaming at?

    The Sapphire has much better cooling compared to the MSI one, I have that particular cooler you chose on my card, albeit its a 2GB 7850.

    Sapphire haven't let me down in my dual card setup. If you were choosing a TF3 model instead of a standard reference model in MSI's case, then I would go for that.
  2. What about noise levels of the sapphire card? Im gaming below 1080p so I dont really need more than 1gb of video ram.

    Also im kinda leaning towards the sapphire one too.
  3. The sapphire cooler is actually quite remarkable to be honest. In a single card setup, I leave my 7850 at 20% fan speed all the time, including games, and I rarely went past 70 degrees celcius. It is silent up to 40%, at which cooling performance is more than enough. 20% fan speed was enough for me 24/7. I also live in Australia which has an ambient currently at around 35 degrees celcius, so results are inflated somewhat.
  4. Wow that really sounds perfect, thanks for your feedback. Ill guess then I will buy the sapphire.
