Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-X 1GB video card review
While the new, custom-built cooling solution is what we're really getting excited about here, Sapphire's Vapor-X board also features increases to both core and memory clocks - This leaves us with an out of the box core clock speed here of 870MHz (a 20MHz increase over reference clocks), while the board's memory gets a more notable 50MHz boost up to 1250MHz.

Naturally, as soon as we take a look at the Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-X, that vapour chamber cooling solution stands out on account of its unique design. I imagine the actual aesthetic of the cooler will be one that enthusiasts either love or hate, but personally I'm rather enamoured by the rugged look of the cooler body - You get the feeling you could drive it over some big mountains or something. I wouldn't recommend trying it though.
