Who said ATI overheats more? I have never seen an ATI card overheat beyond its thermal threshold at stock vGPU. Same goes for nVIDIA, but some of them can get close.
Right now, the HD 5000s are MUCH cooler than GTX 400s.

VaporX is kind of a scam for some cards. I know for sure that the 5770 vaporX actually runs hotter than a reference v2 model. The 5750 version has the same cooler, so I can only assume the same goes for it.
Reference models are fine. The only time ATI really screwed up the cooler was on the reference 4850, but those disappeared very quickly.
