1 out of 5 eggsNow had 2 of these cards fail!

Pros: Nothing

Cons: I'm RMA'ing my second one right now. Same issue on both cards: vertical lines and then blue screen. Other cards in my system work fine. Google this card and you will be shocked at the results. They should be doing a recall!

Other Thoughts: I was a HIS fanboy until this card, now never again!

2 out of 5 eggsFAULTY PRODUCT AND TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!

Pros: Works Great when it works... Plays videos great.

Cons: Crashes on just just about every NEW GAME! Skyrim, Portal 2, Crysis 2, Serious Sam... AND HORRIBLE TROUBLE TICKET FOLLOW UP!!!

Sent ticket on December 10th... AND NOT A SINGLE REPLY!!!!! Don't even have a US number for customer service of ANY SORT!!! Hong Kong... Great... NOT!!!

DO NOT BUY THE ICEQ CARD (6800 - 6900 from what I've read on Gaming Forums) and expect to play NEW GAMES!!!

Other Thoughts: HIS employees.... I EXPECT A RESPONSE WITH A PRACTICAL FOLLOW UP AND INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS DEFECTIVE PRODUCT!!!

2 out of 5 eggsSo close...yet so far...no multicore support

Pros: Fair price, worked great for the games it worked for (IE not games designed with multi-core in mind...)

Cons: With high-end settings on games where this card should work but are specifically multi-core intensive (Skyrim, Bioshock 1&2, GTA4, Fallout: New Vegas, etc..), the card repeatedly and consistently crashes the computer by forcing the monitor into sleep mode and crashing video input because the monitor/video times out. It's a repeated issue that HIS won't deal with and I've talked to their propeitary customer service here in the US (Lexy Pacific) as HIS is an asian company with no offices in the States about this and no help there. Nothing related to heat or bottlenecking with the CPU, it's just a poorly designed card series with a serious flaw. I'm getting a full refund, hopefully.

Other Thoughts: Get a more reviewed and more stable card that is better at the same price.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid this card

Pros: Decent performance for the price. (when it's not causing a black screen system lock up on certain games)

Cons: Black screens on certain games. It's a common problem with this particular card based on the number of people on gaming forums having the same exact problem on many different setups. I'd RMA but I highly doubt getting the same card will help at all.

The games that it black screens on most are Crysis 2, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Saints Row The Third, and Battlefield 3. Battlefield 3 is somewhat playable because you can get an hour or maybe a little more in between lockups but the other games I listed are basically unplayable on this card.
I strongly advise you to not get this card. I honestly don't see why they are still being sold with such a widespread problem and no solution.

2 out of 5 eggsAvoid this one

Pros: It runs very cool. After 30+ mins on FurMark at 100% it only hit 61F

Cons: On high end games you will loose video. Crysis, Skyrim, BFBC2, etc the screen will go black forcing a hard reboot. There is an entire thread of use using this exact card on the Skyrim forums all having this exact same issue!

Other Thoughts: I'm an HIS IceQ fanboy. This was my 3rd "IceQ" edition video card I've purchased. I hope this was just a bad batch and not a sign of things to come.

1 out of 5 eggsCrash Crash and crashes

Pros: Works great.... for the first 20 mins

Cons: After 20 minutes of usage BSOD.
I had to lower graphics to a minimum which lets this last 20 extra minutes...

Other Thoughts: I changed fan speeds and additional fans by the videocard yet the problem still persists.

3 out of 5 eggsQuestion for owners

Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: How could the ratings of most of the other IceQ Turbo cards be excellent and this card only be average? Could this perhaps be a bad batch? I am just wondering as the other levels of this family of cards have excellent reviews.

3 out of 5 eggsFan speed

Pros: It's been quite a while since I've owned an HIS card, but I loved mine when I had it. It never fried on me and when I upgraded to a new card, I ended up going back to my "lower" end HIS because it ran my games better.

Cons: Check the fan speed. HIS factory settings for the fan is too low, even under strenuous use. If I remember correctly, mine never wen above 25% until I set it to do so. Check your settings and increase your fan speed to 100% when gaming. I bet most of you will have a working card after that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card but make sure you meet the system requirements

Pros: Very cool card. I mean that in both physical appearance and temperatures. The fan is surprisingly quiet even turned up to about 50% speed. Currently using in an eyefinity set up and works great, it more than satisfies my gaming needs.

Cons: The card itself is pretty big, which may be a hassle depending on your case size and motherboard layout. Be sure to take it's physical dimensions into account to ensure that you won't have any problems. Just like some of the other reviews on here, I too had some random restarts and bsods at first... But I fixed that issue. Please read the other thoughts portion of this review.

Other Thoughts: I had the bare minimum 500 watt psu and needed to use both adapters included with the card. After several restarts and crashes, I decided to stress test with furmark. 10 mins in and no problems. 15 mins in and bam, my psu died. I went out and got myself an antec 900 watt psu which already came with the necessary cables directly from the psu. THIS COMPLETELY FIXED MY BSODS. No need to underclock or any of the other solutions on here. Be sure to read instructions such as those saying not to use both included power adapters on the same line from psu and have either a really high quality 500 w psu or something much bigger. I've gone about 2 months now and not a single problem even after hours of tf2, dirt, wow,human evolution, and league of legends all on maxed out settings. I highly recommend this card. Awesome bang for your buck!
