"The cooler showed some promising figures in regards to idle and load fan noise and acoustics and didn’t go above 53% RPM when running an intensive test like FurMark...quite surprising with the card not going above 65 degrees Celsius on load and sitting at a comfortable 34 degrees Celsius on idle." eTeknix "Silver Award"

“Both IDLE and LOAD temperatures of The HIS Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X Turbo X are just seriously good… For the cards in a fully stressed status (in-game) we measure under 38 dBA for a single card, now that is considered to be very silent, only when you get close you can hear a tiny bit of airflow…Remember it will allow you to play your games at 1920x1200 extremely well” Guru3D.

"HIS markets this card as "the fastest HD6870 card", and while we haven't tested every HD6870 card on the market, this card certainly is a lot faster than both a regular HD6870 and the overclocked PowerColor PCS HD6870. When also considering the silent and efficient cooler and extra overclocking headroom, it is clear that this must be one of the best HD6870 cards that money can currently buy."-Bjorn3D "Sliver Award"

Overclocking went well, with plenty of room in the Catalyst Control Center, negating the need for third party software to be used... it the IceQ X cooling setup was able to keep the temperature relatively low at a 70C maximum (while overclocked)...Overall then, the HIS 6870 IceQ X Turbo X is an easy card to recommend. It’s cool, quiet, and simply the fastest out of the box 6870 we’ve come across" -Viperlair "Editor's Choice"
