Lets have your thoughts, benchies and overclocks in here then peeps. :D

Some useful stuff
Drivers;
Vista/Win7 - http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/ATIRadeonHD5800seriesrecommendedgraphicsdriver.aspx

Overclocking tools;
**make sure you research fully before messing with your card's BIOS!**
RBE - http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/Utilities/RBE/
Bios flashing tools - http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/Utilities/BIOS_Flashing/ATI/
MSI 5850 'unlocked clocks' bios - http://cid-26aaa81850481d85.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/公開/MSI^_R5850^_unlock.A11
GPUZ - http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/SysInfo/GPU-Z/
ATI Tool - http://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/Tweaking/ATITool/
MSI Afterburner - http://event.msi.com/vga/afterburner/download.htm
AMD GPU Clock Tool - http://techpowerup.com/downloads/1641/AMD_GPU_Clock_Tool_v0.9.26.0_For_HD_5870.html

Current method for extreme clocking on the 5850 is to use MSI afterburner for voltage increases then use ATI GPU clock tool to adjust clocks.
