The HIS IceQ OC H280QC3G2M is powered by a Radeon R9 280, the latest AMD GPU designed to take your gaming to the next level. Based on AMD second-generation GCN architecture and boasting support for DirectX 11.2, the Radeon R9 280 gives you the power to drive today’s hottest games — and tomorrow’s, keeping you in the fight whatever the circumstances. With Ultra Resolution Gaming you can leave HD in the dust by gaming on displays much, much larger. Whether using a 4k monitor or combining multiple HD monitors, you’ll get an expansive experience that’s truly out of sight. A rich set of AMD innovative technologies is included, such as App Acceleration, AMD PowerTune, AMD ZeroCore, and AMD HD3D technology. With these technology advancements, you'll get more than one way to elevate your gaming experience.

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.

  • newegg 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.
  • newegg 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!
  • newegg 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!
  • newegg Second-Generation GCN With AMD's second-generation GCN technology, the card optimizes DirectX 11.2 gaming performance automatically up to 2.5 times faster! It also offers up to 4.5x compute performance and up to 95% lower GPU idle power consumption!
  • newegg Mantle There’s optimization, and then there’s Mantle. Games enabled with Mantle speak the language of GCN architecture to unlock revolutionary performance and image quality. (Application support is required.)
  • newegg See More, Win More! The card is capable to turn your computer into a super gaming machine. Enjoy the latest 3D games with stunning graphics and effects that your enemies cannot match! Get an immersive experience with AMD Eyefinity! Expand your game across up to four displays, while your opponents have just one monitor.

4 out of 5 eggsQuality card but could be better

Pros: 1. The card runs games great most games high-max settings
2. Relatively quiet
3. I personally like how it looks
4. Overclocks well

Cons: 1. It runs pretty hot
2. Hard to put into a pc with a color theme

Other Thoughts: This gpu is in my current first ever build pc and I'm about to build a new pc with pretty much all new hardware except this card and I'm probably going to run crossfire of two of them. But I am more than likely going to watercool because this card simply runs too hot. That is why I bumped an egg off

1 out of 5 eggsCould be SOO much better

Pros: It was great while it lasted. Great fun card to play with, ran cool for the most part, would just devour anything up and great multi-display experience. It's an alright card for overclocking, with dual bios and you can really use that fan to really cool it (mine would top out at 72C on 4K on Furmark).

Cons: You get what you pay for. Mine lasted for about 4 months and than took a dump. While it did i didn't have any over clock on it or anything, just would freeze and wouldn't boot. Along with that, the card does come with a 1 year manufacture warranty, but O....M...G. They use a third party company out of California and they are beyond slow. I live in California and sent my card in priority mail and they said it took them two weeks to get it (when i know they got it the next day... thank you ups tracking) and now they have had it for 3 weeks with no updates. They don't update anything, take their time and you will be lucky to ever hear about it again.

Other Thoughts: I was honestly hoping i found a jewel here for the price, but was sadly disappointed when mine broke from normal use and has taken 6 weeks for me to get to the point where i don't even want it.

Do yourself a favor and buy a proper brand card like Sapphire, EVGA, or XFX. Just to replace this i had to spend even more money and went with with a Nvidia 660 because i'm a college student and don't have all this money.

I personally will NOT buy another one of these cards or brand because of their customer service and support. I wouldn't even mind paying $50 for a replacement, but waiting for over 2 months is just too much to ask for. Please, be aware of the dangers of buying this and the horrible customer support and replacement.

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: Fast, Cheap, AMD had a giveaway as well that gave you 3 games w/ the card, and a rebate making the cost of the card double fine.

in my midtower I was forced to remove my harddrives and build a 2nd platform extending out of my F*ing case just so the card could fit
it is the biggest vid card i've ever seen

Other Thoughts: aside from the size and initial how am I getting this in here head scratching
I have had no issues plays every game I've thrown at it on ultra, no having to dink with any settings very nice, runs at good temps and is much quieter than my older card.

5 out of 5 eggsdont judge

Pros: this card is amazing.. over a year of owning and it still plays all games on max settings

Cons: i havent found a con.. except when i bought it.. it was over 300 dollors.......

Other Thoughts: all those that say they had issues with them, are not computer literate... if they where they would figure out the problem without reinstalling windows etc.. remember you have to update the bios on your motherboard from time to time and also... not all video cards are compatible with all amd, or intel motherboards.. you need to read the specs before buying something...

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice card

Pros: This card offers plenty of power for gaming, and overclocks quite well. I've been able to get mine to 1.1Ghz while gaming in 4k temps only hitting around the 60's.

Cons: No back plate, having a hard time finding one, this is a big card so some people might not be able to fit it.

Other Thoughts: It is a bit loud when the fan is on 100%, that may bug people, i live in the city near a fire and police station, other than that it's a great card.

1 out of 5 eggsBad deal

Pros: <<place said specs by ati here>>

Cons: Altho I am able to play only for a few minute/second on any game, this card show nice graphic. Sadly since the first time I placed this card into my M4a87td-evo board I've got sudden bsod in game , some memory error bluescreens

took all this time since purchase to try to make it work with my windows .. complete re-install included.... only concluding by a fail ... would try to RMA if it wasn't for the 150$game rebate that had come with it

Other Thoughts: this card is the only ati I purchased ... ill remain with what I always said ... amd/NVidia ... intel/ati .... that's how I see things

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
We are sorry for your situation and suggest you try to check following steps.
1. If possible verify the HIS graphics card on another working system or verify another working card on your motherboard. Need to ensure that the platform is no problem.
2. If you need further assistant, please feel free to contact our customer service department directly.

Best Regards
HIS Customer Service (

1 out of 5 eggsHope you dont need support

Pros: None yet

Cons: I had a problem with the HDMI port at the back of my card so I decided to do a warranty claim.
If you have to do a warranty claim with the US distributor, good luck! You ship your card back to them, in CA and they then ship it to Asia. The Asian factory ships a replacement card to them and they then ship it to you. They wont touch their US inventory. So after being without a graphics card for 5 weeks(!!!) I got my replacement. But almost immediately after launching a 3D application, I would get colored lines or a blue screen. Tried different drivers, no difference.
So to test, I borrowed a friends Sapphire R9-270 card and my system was completely stable and remained so for the week I had it.
So I called Lexiypacific again and they just told me to file a new warranty application and they will just follow the same procedure. They cant do anything else to help!
So at the end of this, it looks like hopefully after 11weeks, Ill have a functional GPU again, maybe? Terrible customer service system.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card

Pros: Excellent card. I play Civilization 5. It's at maxed setting running at 75fps which my monitor is. I'm sure if I had 144hz monitor it would be close. Very quiet at 100% fan speed. I had an msi gtx 660 ti at 70% fan speed was louder.
Can get 1100mhz on clock speed and 1500 on memory OC. But I'm only running 1000 on core and 1360 on memory because it's overkill for what I'm doing. Civ 5 only uses 1.3 gigs of ram. Large card. Feels quality. Got it for $249 on sale with $150 game coupon.
The CCC was easy and no problems like sone people have. No problems. Was one of the things I was hesitant buying this card over a gtx 760. But I'm glad I did.

Cons: Only cons are it really are: it droops slightly in my case and the r9 270 has almost same performance for less. It's like 5fps average difference. OC is not great on these cards. Could get a higher end 270 for better performance. The 7950 never did good for having like 500 more shaders than the 7870. Bad on amd. But

Other Thoughts: Still a decent card, runs great with zero problems. If it was on sale I would buy it. At regular price, no way. Even with $150 game coupon. Card itself is good just AMD put the 280 in a hard spot to sell. Spend the same on a gtx 760 or save some and get the 270x. It's all similar performance. Give or take some fps. This card other than price is great. Specially if you need that extra gig of ram over 2gig cards.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY!!!

Pros: None

Cons: This card arrived with the cooler inoperative. Newegg would not replace it because I sent in a mail-in rebate. The mail-in rebate was declined because newegg did not include the plastic wrap with bar code in the packaging. HiS would not replace the card despite a 30-day no questions replacement guarantee because Newegg would not accept the product for RMA. I was finally told to mail the product to a third party for inspection at my own cost, and if it was found to be faulty it would be repaired. Now I am $235 into a card that I payed $189 for, and it still doesn't work!!!!
