"If you still want to get hold of a R9 280, you should hurry. The graphic card is being replaced by the R9 285. The HIS IceQ Turbo X2 is one of the best manufacturers versions and is not expensive. The card holds your Boost constant at 953 MHz (Reference 933), is never louder than most 1.7 Sone and can be very good overclock (1,100+ MHz) as well. More for your money, there is nowhere. "

"This is my first outing with a HIS graphics card and I like what they’ve done with R9 280X. I’ve seen a fair few R9 280X graphics cards from AMD partners and the HIS R9 280X is one of the more refined versions. While it isn’t the cheapest, there’s only a tiny amount in it, and for the little bit more they charge I think it is worth every bit extra. This graphics card runs cool and quiet under all gaming scenarios, has bags of overclocking potential and is just a solid all-rounder."

WCCFtech - Scored 8.8 Out of 10

"Good decision to include their winning design IceQ X2 cooling system which is efficient while keeping the noise at very acceptable levels ... could provide more overclocking potential ... could raise it even further to 1205MHz and the memory from 1500Mhz to 1590MHz, and this WITHOUT modifying the operating voltages.

Performance close to the GTX 770 even exceeds the performance of the Gigabyte OC 770 WF card.

iTurbo utility supports the latest card releases and allows to fine-tune the fan speed, define new profiles, but also to overclock the card with ease by modifying the power limits and voltages."
