The PowerColor PCS HD 5750 Premium Edition

Most vendors are releasing their Radeon HD 5750 cards with custom coolers and PowerColor is no different. As the PCS moniker suggest, the PowerColor PCS HD 5750 Premium Edition (henceforth referred to as the PowerColor PCS 5750 PE) comes with a custom cooler and its from none other than ZEROtherm. The ZEROtherm GX815 VGA cooler that is found on this card is one of the most extreme we have seen, with more than one hundred copper cooling fins to help dissipate heat. Hopefully this will translate to low operating temperatures which we'll find out later. If you are worried about noise, we are happy to report that the ZEROtherm cooler runs smooth and quiet.

Despite the aggressive cooler, the PowerColor PCS 5750 PE runs at ATI's reference speeds, which is a tad disappointing.
