This card is slightly overclocked to 953MHz Boost Clock (standard 933MHz) for smoother gameplay. The IceQ cooling solution, selection of top-notch components, and meticulous build ensure reliability, stability, and durability for hassle-free high-load gaming in challenging environments.
IceQ – Cooler, Quieter With IceQ, the card is cooler and quieter than the reference design. 2x 6mm plus 2x 8mm wide heatpipes optimize cooling performance by removing heat from the core area. The extra large 35 x 28 mm copper heatbase provides a large heat dissipation area. The super large 80 x 21.5mm single blower fan draws a massive amount of cool air to cool the GPU directly. The black hole impeller ensures a large amount of cool air is ready. It draws cool air from both sides of the fan, even if there is another card blocking the fan inlet on the front, such as in a CrossFire setup. The card also features fan control and fan monitoring; you are able to read the fan speed and Asic temperature from the CCC or software. The card is below 28dB when watching movies, surfing Facebook, or working. The card remains quiet whether you are gaming, socializing online, or entertaining.
Special Metal Rib The PCB might easily warp due to prolonged hanging on motherboard and casing, potentially causing cracks on the BGA solder joints and resulting in malfunctioning of the card. The HIS special metal rib provides extra strength to the PCBs to avoid warping, making the cards extra stable and durable. You can count on HIS cards to game hard 24/7/365 for years!
OC Equipment OC material is ready for overclocking to the limit! HIS cards utilize a Dynamic Phase Control PWM IC to save power for better use. Along with a digital power design and a two-ounce copper layer, HIS cards make the best out of power, allowing users to tune clock speeds to the full potential! A solid state choke stabilizes the card, while full solid state capacitors ensure the best power quality and enhance the card’s stability in critical gaming situations!
