HIS HD6970 IceQ Turbo Edition Review

Rating: 9.0.

KitGuru readers love modified, custom graphics cards and today we are looking at one of the most eye catching designs yet, the new HIS HD6970 ICEQ Turbo Edition –  a preoverclocked card with a dramatically designed custom cooler.

The HIS HD6970 IceQ Turbo Edition is supplied with a modest overclock on the core, from 880mhz to 900mhz and the memory has been increased to 1400mhz, or 5.6GBps effective. The main talking point however is the cooler, which is certainly going to be the center point of many discussions.
