HIS R9 280X IceQX2 Turbo


Over the years HIS has improved not only the functionality of the IceQ-fan but just as important the looks of the cooler. At one time the cooler was a translucent blue color but we like the look of the cooler now much better. 


Here we see a closer look of the two fans on the card. The fan blades are shaped to minimize sound while maximize the amount of air the fan pushes.


The card is open on the sides so some air will be sucked in that way. Most of the air will however be sucked in from the back of the card. Here we also see the heat-pipes as well as the two 8-pin pci-power connectors. 


 Most of the air is sucked in from the back.


 On the back we find a DVI-D, a HDMI and 2 mini-DisplayPort connectors. HIS does NOT include any mini-DisplayPort to regular-DisplayPort adapter.
