HIS has made it’s name well-known in the past with it’s IceQ
Series of ATi Graphics Cards. From it’s X800 series of graphics cards, we have
seen the IceQ cooling on their cards evolve. IceQ cooling of HIS has advanced
to the third stage and we review HIS X1800GTO IceQ3 and see what it offers in
terms of improved cooling… and evaluate the “unlocking” capability on
this card.

Here are some features of the latest IceQ 3 cooling solution
of HIS:
1, Innovative design: Significantly improve cooling performance and lower weight.
2, Heatpipe with sintered powder wicks: Heat is rapidly transferred from the
core area reducing the GPU temperature.
3, Isolated heatsinks: Memory and GPU heatsinks are completely separated, preventing
any heat transfer from GPU to memory.
4, Bi-directional air in-take channels: Cool air is drawn from both sides of
the fan. Improving air flow. This ensure effective cooling even for CrossFire
platform.
5, Ultra silent and durable fan: Significantly reduced noise level and extended
service lift.
6, Larger heatsink surface area: Ensure maximum heat dissipation.
7, Dual-slot cooling design: Directly exhausts hot air out of PC case.
