3 out of 5 eggsFan Noise

Pros: It plays games and video without any hiccups.

Cons: I've owned two of these cards. The first I RMA'd due to fan noise. The second one also had the exact same noise immediately.
Due to laziness I decided to just hold onto the second one. Tired of dealing with RMAs.

If you are sensitive to abnormal fan noises due not purchase this card.

1 out of 5 eggsGood..but risky

Pros: Good card, runs very cool with little to no sound. Able to run high fps in games with no problem and comes with iTurbo.

Cons: Big, it covered up 2 other slots on my MB. It broke after about 3 months and HIS has terrible service. They have been no help at all. The card started to cut out while playing games and running stressful programs. My monitor couldn't get a read from the card. I did multiple tests with the card and without the card in and it was the GPU that was faulty. Lexy Pacific, which is the RMA provider is terrible. I sent it in over a month ago and haven't even heard from them. Its coming up on the 30 business days that they ask you to wait but this is a bit ridiculous. No way I am going to suggest HIS to other people or ever buy another product. Its worth the extra money to buy a good experienced and well reviewed brand.

Other Thoughts: Spend your money else where. Has good prices but bad service. I give it 1 egg due to the service I have received from the company and that it broke within 3 months of owning it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat GPU

Pros: This gpu is definitely more than enough for current games. It runs cool (besides my low quality case), and it literally makes like no sound anywhere lower than 55% fan speed

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I had a really bad laptop before, so this is like a dream come true

Pros: fast
cheaper then 7970/670
3gb ram

Cons: none with this card

Other Thoughts: this card has been very good for me so far. OCs like a champ, stays cool. the iceq cards are worth the money. I have had bad luck non-iceq his cards in the past, failing fans mainly. all in all I am happy with this card. it plays all my games maxed out with very playable frame rates.

5 out of 5 eggsLovin It

Pros: I have owned this for around 8 months and its still very quiet and very efficent. The IceQ modle of this card is just phenominal and I have had absolutly no problems with it. The black hole fan and the 4 cooling pipes keeps this very cool, I havent had this go into any kind of red zone or show any signs of getting too hot. This is a great buy.

Cons: None so far.

1 out of 5 eggsHD no way

Pros: It works like a cheep graphics card. On HDMI to tv.

Cons: It is unable to do HDTV streams on my HDTV my old XFX 5870 can do HDTV without any problems, but this card is totaly unable to do so. I had a his product many years ago and had good luck with it but back to xfx I guess. This was a waste of money.

Other Thoughts: Not much in the way of other thoughts because there is not much it will do.

5 out of 5 eggsVery happy with this card

Pros: -For the price point, performed very well out of the box. Good choice for gamers looking for a good compromise between price and performance.

-Overclocked like a champ. I've got it up to 1020 core/1575 memory without increasing voltage at all. If you're bold enough to up the voltage, you could really make this card shine.

-The fan really is impressive. To quote a friend, "LOOK AT THOSE HEAT PIPES."

Cons: -The fan is *big*. Not necessarily a con, but something to keep in mind. Make sure this big boy will fit with all your other equipment before you buy.

-HIS' bundled overclocking/fan control utility (iTurbo) is pretty mediocre. It does have some good options for controlling fan speed, but if you're just looking to overclock you're probably better off just using AMD's Catalyst suite.

-I have no idea what causes it, but sometimes my voltage settings on this card get set way below stock, causing problems with my overclock. It's super easy to fix and never been a serious issue, but watch out for it.

Other Thoughts: Seriously happy with this card. Should be an option to seriously consider for anyone looking for a reasonably priced card for the performance, especially if you plan on overclocking.

5 out of 5 eggsFINEST BUILD QUALITY I HAVE SEEN – part 2

Pros: Overclocked to 975 this card can handle 2560x1600 resolution Sleeping Dogs at high res texture pack and DX11 and max settings, with a fluid average 28 fps.

This is a followup two months later to my 8/5/12 review below. Both cards have performed flawlessly alone, or in crossfire.

If you are put off by some of the bad reviews, remember that you are protected by Newegg if you have to RMA, and if the card is defective, you will only be out the cheap shipping. So when you get your card, thoroughly test it - more on that below. And keep all of your packaging for at least the 30 day return period.

If you look down at my 8/5/12 review, you will find that I was having problems fitting two of these cards in a beautiful mid-tower Antec Sonata case. In that review I speculated that I might move all my components to a full-tower Thermaltake Spedo case that I had bought about 4 years ago, which was still in its box brand new in the garage. That case is a bottom psu design. Since the part of the HIS IceQ card that is 3 slots wide, is the end where the fan is, that part extends way past the bottom PSU, and so there are no issues any more of the second card fitting in the bottom PSU case. I could have made it work in the mid-tower Antec in slot 6, only by cutting a hole in the case bottom and adding feet to the case - I was seriously considering doing that.

Back to single card performance - I pulled out Crysis, Crysis 2, and Warhead, which I bought but never played, waiting for this upgrade. I ran them with one card, 2560x1600, max AA, max AF, everything max, and averaged about 32fps, and it was completely fluid. On Crysis 2 I opted for DX11 - I took every max or ultra setting available.

A super tech guru warned about a major fps drop in Crysis once you hit the ice. Guess what - it never happened. The card sailed through and I never got below the low 30s which for me is fluid - never any feeling of lag. Same for BF3 ultra.

Finally along came Sleeping Dogs, at 30" gaming, 2560x1600, high resolution texture pack, DX11. The game looks awesome. It is the only game so far that has seriously tested this card.

Initially I got about 24fps average in the game, a little laggy, but at the rock solid overclock of 975, 1350 memory, and vddc 1087, it gets a fluid 28 fps, and never drops below that. I ran the game in crossfire, where I get fps in the 40s and up - pretty good scaling on the second card - but the higher frame rates seem to put more stress on my slow 9450 cpu, and a few times I noticed my cores max out at 100% load every core!!

I finished the game, but at the end I dropped to stock clocks on both cards in crossfire, and fps at about 40. I didn't really notice a major change from one card overclocked at 28 fps. It's a gorgeous game. If the karate is trouble (I think pc reacts slower than console) find all the health shrines, and before major fights, like Stickup, do 3 things: A. Eat, and drink: b. energ

Cons: I have discovered what I think is a driver incompatibility problem on BF:BC2. I am running the latest Catalyst, 12.8. I have tested both cards singly and in crossfire. Singly, each card stops reporting gpu temp, and load, within about 10 minutes.

I am monitoring temps and load in-game with MSI Afterburner. But I am setting my overclock with Sapphire Trixx. I have tested gpu core clock of 975, memory at 1350, and vddc of 1087, and had that be completely stable. Sleeping Dogs at stock clock runs only about 24fps at 2560x1600, but at the 975, as I mentioned, I get 28 or more, which is fluid. With both cards, I get near 40fps.

There is nothing that tests a card like a game, and the 975 is stable, whereas 1000 appeared to be stable in furmark, and in Heaven, but in-game, that overclock caused a hang in Sleeping Dogs after 10 minutes. So 975, 1350, and vddc of 1087 seems a solid combination. Vddc you can set with Trixx. (Close CCC and Mom.exe.) MSI Afterburner gives me the OSD (on-screen display) and because I formerly had an old nvidia card, and I was setting my OSD with Riva Tuner, when I now start Afterburner, and then riva, the cpu core information from Riva shows up in my Afterburner display - that is wayy cool.

You could do the same by picking up a dirt cheap nvidia card for $25, preferably an older one (but maybe a new one would work) getting everything set up in Riva, then putting the HIS IceQ back. Riva won't work with the 7950, and in fact initially Afterburner wouldn't either, but I won't let Afterburner update to the new revision that WILL work, because I don't want it adjusting my Trixx settings - I only want it for its OSD. I decided I didn't like how the core temp and load info was laid out, so I took out my HIS, put the old nvidia back in, set everything how I wanted it, then reversed. That was a lot of driver changing, and I ran Driver Clean each time, but my OSD now is awesome, with gpu temp and load, fan rpm, clock and memory clock, and memory vram usage, for both cards, then a full set of core info on all 4 cores, temps, load, and speed, which is the same on all cores of course, but that lines up the load so I can glance from top to bottom and see my cpu usage - in Sleeping Dogs it has occasionally hit 100% all 4 cores - and THEN I might suffer severe fps drops to the low teens. This is because my processor is a slow 9450, overclocked to 3.343ghz, with 8 gigs RAM-which is sufficient. This only happened in crossfire, overclocking the HIS at 975.

So, in crossfire, I dropped to stock 800 clocks on the HIS cards so my cpu didn't have to work so hard, my core loads dropped to around 95%, and I still got a smooth 40fps or more in Dogs.

The BF:BC2 incompatibility affects one card more than the other - why I have absolutely no idea. The least affected card gives me several hours before a hang - so that one is now in main slot 3. I run that game with crossfire disabled, all max = 45

Other Thoughts: When I said make sure you test your card during the 30 day return period - what is a good test?

Well, Furmark is a basic test, but not really that good to detect flaws. People who have written reviews on overclocking, choose some massive overclock, and say "It runs great!" but they are testing with Furmark. Also, be careful of Furmark - it may overheat your card.

These HIS IceQ cards can run full 2560x1600 Furmark, and at fixed max fan speed, can stay under 80, even the main card which does more work than the second card, and therefore runs hotter. Furmark will graph each card in crossfire, provided you run it full screen - crossfire only works in full screen mode, and that is also true for games I believe. If you allow auto fan, you may get temps to 85. I suggest you not let it get hotter than that.

Furmark will graph temps, and let you see the effect of fan speed on temps. Using Trixx, I either use 100% fan speed, or I use a custom fan setting, a line from 0 to 80% and 80 degrees. Since my HIS hits near max rpm at about 75% tachometer, that keeps my cards cool.

But on Sleeping Dogs, in crossfire, I was so close to maxing out my cpu core load, I dropped the custom fan setting, which put my cpus at 100%, and I went back to max fan on Sleeping Dogs. Now that I have finished that game, I am back to the Trixx custom fan setting. The custom setting seems to only affect the main card - the other runs slower fans at auto fan setting.

That is okay - that card, while it may show 100% load like the other, is not charged with assembling the whole frame. The main card, as shown by gpu-z logging, carries more core amperage than the second card, therefore that shows it does more work, and it gets hotter.

Ok, so Furmark is just a basic test - it will show you also if your OSD is working - don't let temps get past 85. Better to keep them below 80, and my temps often run below 70 in-game, depending on how hot my room is - we have had some hot 100 degree weather and I had to game only at night. Other than free Furmark, I recommend you pay $19 for the new 3dmark11, as I did. And I am glad I did. That test picked up artifacts on a Power Color 7950 that I RMA'd, in the first test segment with the submersibles. For testing there is also Unigine Heaven - which is free - but which however did not exhibit any artifacts with the defective Power Color card. That gives you 3 tests, Furmark, Heaven, and 3dMark11.

At 975 core, my 3dmark11 was about 2560, my Heaven at 1920x1080, normal tesselation, 4x AA, and 16x AF, was about 1630. With Heaven in crossfire, I broke 2900, but at 1000 core, which later hung in-game. So I consider 975 my max stable. (My overall 3dmark11 is low due to my slower cpu.)

Once you get through with your testing, do some serious gaming, on max settings. You can start up gpu-z, which is free, and do some logging - to the desktop. Open the log with notepad, and you will clearly see down the var

2 out of 5 eggs3rd Times a Charm? Nope.

Pros: On paper, this is one of, if not the best 7950s out there. One of the best coolers on the market that does an excellent job of controlling the heat while generating little noise.

Cons: Where do I start? I am about to RMA my 3rd card.. The first card I received jumped to ~90c after about 10 minutes of gaming - obviously the HSF wasn't making good contact or it was a thermal paste issue.
The second card was great for about a week when the fan started making loud clanking noises.
Now on my 3rd HiS card, the fan was making noises (albeit not nearly as loud as my last card) right out of the box.. On top of all this, both this and the last card had bad ASIC numbers and were very poor overclockers (obviously didn't attempt an overclock on the first card).

Other Thoughts: Maybe it's just really bad luck that I received three bad cards in a row, but it also has to say something about the quality control of HiS products.
