Default HR-03 on Sapphire 4850

I have an HR-03 cooler that I used on my 8800GTX..
Can I use this on my new 4850?
If not what are the differences between the HR-03 and GT versions??
I looks like it might fit..?"

If you are refering to the HR-03 Plus for the 8800 series from nVidia then magictorch is correct. The main difference is the HR-03 GT is compatible with nVidia and ATI cards, the HR-03 Plus is only compatible with nVidia G80 GTS, GTX and Ultra cards.

As far the HR03-GT that is fully compatible with both the 4850 and 4870 as stated on thermalrights website and what we have seen in SKTMTL's review. Regardless getting a HR03-GT for your 4850 would be a worth while upgrade as the results from SKYMTL's review of the 4870 provides the most superior cooling I have ever seen and I bet that it would be just as effective on the 4850.

Well it fits on the Palit 4870:

So that could be a good indication.
