A while ago we teamed up with Sapphire to offer you lucky readers the chance to win a Sapphire Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-X graphics card. The competition is now over, so we can announce the winner.

First off, let’s recap the competition question. We asked what the main benefits of a Sapphire Vapor-X cooler are, with these options:
    a) It can turn into a giant man-eating robot.
    b) Each cooler comes with an actual, real-life penguin.
    c) It's very quiet yet very efficient at cooling a GPU.
As we all know, the answer is a) it can turn into a giant… c) – the Vapor-X cooler is a very quiet and yet very efficient cooler. Which should make the Radeon HD 5870 Vapor-X card one of the coolest air-cooled graphics cards going

After over 4,400 entries, the winner is… Mark Nicholls from County Kildare in Ireland! Well done Mark, and let us be the first to congratulate you on your Sapphire knowledge and your lovely new graphics card! You can offer your words of congratulations via the forums.

Please note that your prize will be sent out directly from the supplier, not from, so there may be some delay in it reaching you. This also unfortunately means that we are unable to give a delivery date. However, if you do not receive your prize within 6-8 weeks please contact emily_hodges [at]
