HIS HD 5870 iCooler V Turbo review

Rating: 8.0.

KitGuru has been concentrating recently on many mid range boards, however today we are going to be looking at the high end custom HIS HD5870 graphics card, a product we know that will get you excited.

The HIS HD 5870 iCooler V Turbo is completely redesigned and it ships with a iCooler V heatsink and a customised PCB layout which offers a more cost effective production. The core speed is increased by 25mhz and the memory also gets a 100mhz effective bump. If you like free games then this bundle also ships with the excellent Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.

The icing on the cake is that the card is only £20 more expensive than the reference design, so on paper it appears to be very good value for money.

    HD5870 is a great card and I like the look of this one. cooler is a bit ugly I think but its nice to see improved/higher fan speeds for cooler temps.

  • Death Dealer

    I never really notice fan noise, unless its wild helicopter style noise. This looks like a good buy. I never see them in america tho, not in stores anyway

  • Stefan

    Sapphire model is better but it costs more. which I would say would be pretty obvious

  • Derek

    Well I like being proved wrong, I had assumed HIS was a POS, but this review has certainly changed my view.

  • Bret

    mega OC on that. weird they only overclock it a little out of the factory. its hardly ‘turbo’ more ‘shoved a little’

  • Joseph

    Glad to see you mentioning the hardly overclocked speeds. I dont know why they launch these as TURBO editions when its hardly even overclocked in the least, which is shown on the graphs. So much headroom and I think a small portion of the audience will even know how much they can get out of it. ID have gave it 3 out of 5 just for that point. TURBO should be TURBO.

  • Eric K

    Well I was expecting good temps, but more noise over reference? surely thats not right

  • frank

    nice review, very thorough, thanks.

  • Cyril

    Excellent, I like that card a lot. I prefer cooler to quieter.

  • Francois

    I would probably still opt for Sapphire, they just seem a better company

  • Bob

    HIS are good, its just a name, most of them are really good cards today.

  • glenn

    I just ordered one of these and got a bit of a bargain, 50 off retail price 🙂
