HIS X700 Pro IceQ Turbo VIVO
Want extreme cooling on your ATI-based video card without adding extra noise? Don't want to do it yourself? HIS and a few other companies want to help you out. These companies provide better-than-stock cooling solutions on ATI's latest and greatest graphics chips. You might be thinking that you'll just buy a board with a stock cooler and upgrade it yourself. That's cool (pun intended), but what about that warranty that says any modifications of the board voids it? I realize that hardcore modders probably couldn't care less about voiding a warranty, but I'm concerned about the newbie who reads some article about how some guy put his refrigerator on his brand new video card so he could overclock it to perform at levels that only boards twice as expensive can normally perform. The newbie probably wouldn't realize that if he makes changes to his board that an RMA department could recognize as modding, he's out of luck and has to buy a new board.
The point of HIS's IceQ line of boards is providing this high-performance cooling so that the board does not have to be modified to get every last bit of performance out of it. Bjorn3D has already taken a look at a couple (X800 Pro and X800 XT) of these solutions from HIS, and today I am pleased to present another one - the X700 Pro IceQ Turbo VIVO.
