Sapphire new 5850 Cooler?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I bought a 5850 back in......... Jan I believe.
It was the sapphire 5850, had the normal reference design.

But now....the new 5850's have a different cooler (it's like in the middle and stuff)?

Was something wrong with the old 5850's?
I know there is the toxic/ and vapor-x editions, but this is the normal 5850?

So is there something wrong with the old reference model? or did they just basically add a new fan design. (and they still make the reference card like it was)
Because ATI's site shows the 5850 as it's old reference model.

Just making sure my 5850 is fine

Nothing wrong with the old design some say its better. Its just a non-ref cooler and board on the newer 5850s.
