Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5750 piles on the cooling performance

Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5750Graphics cards tend to be very temperature sensitive which puts a bit of a crimp in the overclocking and tweaking plans of many of use out there, reference coolers just can’t seem to keep up.

TestSeek Labs has a look at the Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon HD 5750 which does away with the reference design in favor of their own finely tuned cooling solution:

The cooling solution occupies a double slot which may be a disadvantage because this card must be rated as a medium range card and many users prefer single slot cards in this segment. AMD/ATI sets the overall rules from which the manufacturers can build their cards and they often leave rather small margins which I guess must be the reason why I have yet to see a 5750 single slot card.

It’s not like you’ll be using any slot underneath a video card anyway, don’t want to preheat it with another card’s heat output…yes we’re a little obsessed with keeping stuff cool.
