Considering that the PowerColor PCS 5750 PE was using a custom ZEROtherm GX815 cooler, we were not surprised to see that its operating temperature was only 62 degrees Celsius. In fact, if you consider the 68 degrees Celsius for the Radeon HD 5770 was tested using only ATI's reference cooler, 62 degrees Celsius is actually nothing to shout about. However, since this is our first experience of an Evergreen card running on a custom cooler, it is possible that this points to the efficiency of ATI's stock cooler design. We can only tell for sure once more Evergreen cards with custom coolers start making their way into our labs.

Last but not least for this segment, the PowerColor PCS 5750 PE is way cooler than the stock Radeon HD 4850 graphics card when considering that both are in the same performance and price segment.

Power Consumption

Great power efficiency is the hallmark of an Evergreen card and the PowerColor PCS 5750 PE didn't disappoint, clocking the lowest figures in this category. Its power consumption figures were lower even than a GeForce 9800 GT, which is certainly impressive if you consider just how much more powerful the Radeon HD 5700 series cards are.

The PowerColor PCS 5750 PE was a willing overclocker as we managed to push it up to 830MHz at the core and a staggering 5000MHz DDR at the memory using the built-in ATI Overdrive utility. This meant a 130MHz and 400MHz DDR bump in core and memory clock speeds respectively. This gave us 3948 3DMarks, which translates to an improvement of about 16%.
