IceQ X² – Cooler, Quieter
With IceQ X², the card is cooler than the reference cooler.
IceQ X² is one of the quietest coolers, making the card quieter than the reference cooler. The card is below 28dB when watching movies, surfing Facebook, working. The card remains quiet whether you are gaming, online socializing, entertaining or working.
The super large 2x 89mm dual axial fans draws massive amount of cool air to cool the GPU directly.
The Q&C fan blade increases air velocity make cooling more efficiently while keeping noise level at minimum.
The fan is extremely durable with a life span of up to 50,000 hours.
3x 6mm and 2x 8mm wide heatpipes optimize cooling performance by removing heat from the core area.
The extra large 40x47.5mm copper heatsink provides a large area to dissipate heat efficiently.
The card also carries memory and mosfet heat sinks to provide extra heat dissipation from these areas.
The card also features fan control and monitoring, you are able to read fan speed & Asic temperature from iTurbo or other softwares.
Long Lasting Design: Safer, Last Longer!
The card has two bios, ensuring the card runs properly. You can always switch to the second Bios if the card does not run with the first Bios.
Enhances stability in critical gaming situations!
HIS cards are engineered with the highest standard of safety, preventing them any potential damages. Solid State Choke stabilizes the card and Full Solid State Capacitors ensures the best power quality and enhances the card’s stability in critical gaming situations!
Special Metal Rib
PCB might easily warped due to prolonged hanging on motherboard & casing, potentially causing cracks on BGA solder joints and resulting in malfunctioning of the card. The HIS special metal rib provides extra strength to the PCBs to avoid warpage, making the cards extra stable and durable. You can count on HIS cards to game hard for 24/7/365 for years!
The card is equipped with improved power design which is great for OC! HIS cards utilize Dynamic Phase Control PWM IC to save power for better use.

Post your comment
HIS has won over 1700 awards with AMD graphic solutions from major media worldwide.
"We have liked it because of two main reasons: the efficient cooling system and also the overclocking capabilities. While the card can deliver quite a bit of performance at stock clocks, the overclocked performance can even exceed the speed of a regular Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition. In our case we were able to attain this performance without the need of increasing the stock voltage.After running the Heaven 4.0 benchmark in order to monitor the maximum temperatures, we have seen that the card did not pass 65 degrees Celsius and the fan noise remained at acceptable levels. The cooling system does not exceed the height of two slots, so we should not run into compatibility issues or overheat when our system is composed from a multi-card setup."
Madshrimps.be - Recommended Performance Product
"It's dual-fan IceQ X² cooler is performing pretty well, with the idle levels to be in the 30 Degrees C range and and at 60 Degrees C under stress. Noise levels are also very acceptable.
Performance figures are also impressive, with the 7950 IceQ X² Boost edition to deliver FPS that sometimes reach the levels of more expensive cards. For instance, we measured more than 35 average FPS at Crysis 3 in 1920x1200 at Very High Quality and FXAA.
Overclocking also returned some good results. The card reached the 1150 MHz with just a few tweaks and great stability. All we did was to
increase power limiter, voltage and the fan speed. The result was a great
10~15% in performance.
For around $310-320 you get a very good graphics card that can play all the latest games at acceptable image quality settings at a resolution of 1920x1080/1200."

“HIS confirm the good thoughts we have about their product : the IceQ X² a dual fan cooling system is doing great job on a Tahiti GPU that can show in this configuration a great OC potential. The performance / price ratio of the card is quite well equilibrated and so the HIS Radeon HD 7950 IceQ X² Boost Clock is a card you can count on.”

"Where the HIS 7950 IceQ X² Boost Clock really shines though is in its performance. While its out of the box stock (950MHz Boost Clock/1250MHz Mem Clock) performance is good, the overclocked (1150MHz Boost Clock/1500MHz Mem Clock) performance is just amazing, out performing an AMD 7970 GHz Edition card in all of our benchmarks! I don’t feel I need to say any more on the subject…
Add to this good thermals, with the card peaking out at just 61 degrees Celsius and low power consumption during the test period plus noise levels that could hardly be heard above the fans within the Cooler Master HAF XB case, means that HIS have a sure fire winner here."

"The three graphics cards from HIS we’ve covered in this review are interesting products in their respective categories. Each of them features an enhanced power system with high-quality durable components and an original high-performance cooler. The HIS 7970 IceQ X² GHz Edition, HIS 7950 IceQ X² Boost Clock and HIS 7850 IceQ Turbo X are also a little faster than the respective reference solutions due to pre-overclocked GPUs. Added to that are the reliable and informative packaging and the exclusive iTurbo utility. The graphics cards can please you with their looks, too. Although they are usually hidden from view inside the computer case, it is a real pleasure to just hold such a stylish product in your hands." xbitlabs

"you can see the cooler does an excellent job sitting in the middle of the pack when it comes to our noise and temperature numbers...If you're looking at buying a new video card for some holiday gaming and want something that stands out a bit more than a reference design and cooled HD 7950, this is a really nice option...HIS have put together a really nice product that looks great and performs exceptionally well." TweakTown - Editor's Choice Award
"True to form, many AMD disciples waited for custom PCB and cooler designs that could really push the cards’ full capabilities. That’s been achieved here with the HIS 7950 IceQ X2, for the most part, with plenty of gas left in the tank for overclocking, pushing the performance ahead of the GTX 670 in an OC state. HIS has really put together a killer card is with the new IceQ X2 heatsink. This design is stunning in terms of keeping temperatures and noise levels impressively low." PureOverclock - Great Hardware
"The benchmark results speak for themselves with consistently high performance marks. It managed to hold its own against the GTX 680 and GTX 670, especially in the game benchmarks where it came out on top quite often." Overclockers.com - Approved
"For the most part the same can be said about the HIS 7950 IceQ X² Boost Clock, as its meager 25MHz factory overclock to the boost clock had at best a 1fps increase on performance." Legion Hardware - Supreme Value Award
