I'm thinking of buying a 5850 soon(ish) and I was wondering if I can recycle my Accelero S1 r2 w/ Turbo Module (2x60mm fans) from the 4850.

Vote if you think the Accelero S1 r2 can cool properly a 5850 @stock and post your thoughts (if any) on this cooling mod. Thanks!

/sidenote: Common sense tells me the answer is no since the 5850 is such a faster card, has 2x PCIe plugs, but various sites peg the power consumption of the 5850 some 20W higher than the stock 4850. My 4850 is heavily OV/OC, so a 5850 (if I'm to believe those readings) could actually consume less under load. Does this make any sense?

You will be fine re-using your accelero. I am also guessing that stock cooling probably better. I love my t-rad 2, but I have two delta 92mm fans that make a cap load of noise. While it's cool to have my card stay cooler that 45c, it does no good with out being able to overvolt my gpu and not being able to over clock it. I also think that overclocking GPUs seems to make or problems than it does to improve frame rates.
