I have an opportunity to upgrade one of my HD4850's to an HD4890 for only about a $20 difference. Anybody have any experience with the Sapphire Vapor-X cooling system? Good, bad, indifferent? Anything to watch out for vs regular GPU's?

I never had any of the Vapor-X Cards from Sapphire but I did have some Sapphire 4870 Toxic-X Cards which are very similar & they ran a good 10c to 15c Cooler than the Regular Cards from Sapphire ... I think the main Difference in the Regular and the Vapor or Toxic Cards from Sapphire was the Copper Tubing which the Vapor & Toxic Cards had. Copper Tubing Cools better than the standard Tubing, also the Vapor & Toxic Editions were Clocked a little higher right from Sapphire ...
