Default HIS HD7870 IceQ Turbo and IceQ X Turbo X Review

Today we are looking at two of the latest graphics cards from HIS, the confusingly named HD7870 IceQ Turbo and the IceQ X Turbo X. Both of these cards feature custom cooling solutions and are supplied in a pre-overclocked state. We have been impressed with the IceQ coolers in the past, especially in regards to low noise levels, so we have hopes that these cards will prove a tempting solution for the discerning enthusiast gamer.

Love the look of the Turbo X personally
The other is a little bit ungainly for me

Perhaps they could modify their moniker, as the cards don't quite look "IceQ" anymore. (black ice perhaps?) Although I surely don't care so much about the looks, more about the noise level and they still seem good.

Yeah good point - 'black ice' would work a lot better wouldnt it ?

I agree they should also change the PCB color to black and rename it black ice
