The Card


With the package out the way it's time to move onto the card and like most IceQ cards there isn't a whole lot to the front of the card thanks to the giant heatsink taking up the majority of the space.



Looking around the card we can see some carefully placed copper heatsinks but that's about all.



If we have a look around the card, the top right corner shows us a single PCI Express connector while the top of the card shows off our Crossfire connectors if you want to make use of two of these cards.



Moving across the top of the card we can see more of the copper heatsink along with a copper heatpipe that comes out the top of the card.



Finally we move over to the I/O side of things, we can see the card is a dual slot one with two Dual Link DVI ports. We also have the single TV-Out port between the two DVI ports. The whole black/gold design is also very cool and makes the card a little more elegant.




As we mentioned earlier, the particular model not only carries with it an aftermarket cooler but also increased core and memory clocks. The core comes in packing a hefty 735MHz, up from the standard 668MHz and the memory comes clocked in at a healthy 1960MHz DDR which is up from the stock 1650MHz DDR.
