Sapphire Radeon HD 5750 Vapor-X Review

The Sapphire Radeon HD 5750 Vapor-X video card is a slightly faster overclocked version of their regular HD 5750 card. While a 10MHz overclock on both the core and memory clock speeds is not much, that is not the point of this card. The Vapor-X video card runs quietly when in Windows with no discernable noise from the card in normal operation. The second thing this card has is a high overclock threshold with 850MHz for the core and 1420MHz for the memory fully stable. Temperatures with Vapor-X reached 56C under load when overclocked and 42C when idle, very good temperatures for a video card. The cost of the card will be a little more expensive than a 5750 reference card but for that cost you get excellent cooling, excellent overclocking and slightly higher performance due to the increased clocks. You also get a copy of Colin Mcrae’s Dirt 2 game that is one of the first DX11 games to hit in December. For those wanting extreme cooling and a different than standard reference designed card this is one solid Hot Product. By Benjamin Sun
