Product Features

iPower: More Voltage, More Overclocking!


Increased Power supply input for more voltage for overclocking! The extra PWM phase for core voltage provides extra power stability, lower temperature for power components!


Turbo: HIS OC Graphics Card


Turbo cards are faster than regular cards! The card is bios-overclocked out of the box with 1000 MHz/ 4800 MHz core clock and memory clock.


IceQ– Cooler, Quieter


Crossfire Advantage

IceQ ensures effective cooling when there is another card in front blocking the fan inlet, such as in CrossFire setup.


By expelling the hot air, IceQ removes all the heat generated by the GPU out of the computer chassis, prevents the hot air from accumulating inside and enhancing the overall stability. The more crowded the chassis, the greater will be the impact.


Black Hole Impeller


Black hole impeller ensures large amount of cool air is ready. It draws cool air from both sides of the fan even there is another card blocking the fan inlet on the front side of fan.




The card is cooler than reference cooler.




IceQ is one of the quietest coolers. The card is below 28dB when watching movies, surfing Facebook, working. The card remains quiet whether you are gaming, online socializing or entertaining.


Fan Design


The super large 57mm single blower fan draws massive amount of cool air to cool the GPU directly.


The fan is extremely durable with a life span of up to 50,000 hours!


2x 6mm plus 2x 8mm wide heatpipes optimize cooling performance by removing heat from the core area.


The extra large 115 x 94mm copper heatbase provides a 140 x 125mm large heat dissipation area.


The card also features fan control and fan monitoring, you are able to read fan speed & Asic temperature from CCC or software.
