HIS Radeon R9 380X IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB Video Card Review

Detailed Look


I've loved the look of the HIS boxes, as they adopt an ice theme that just looks super awesome. The HIS Radeon R9 380X IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB is no different, with an identical box to most of its other Radeon 300 series video cards.




Starting with the front, we have the usual ice crystals theme - which, as I've said before - reminds me of Superman's fortress of solitude.



On the back, we have everything we need to know - HIS has used full solid state capacitors, high-quality components, dynamic phase control PCM ICs, and the IceQ X2 cooler itself.




Looking at the front of the card, we can see the IceQ X2 cooler, which keeps the GPU, VRMs and the rest of the card nice and cool.




HIS didn't use a backplate on the rear of the R9 380X IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB.




HIS has included two DVI ports, 1 x DisplayPort and 1 x HDMI port on the card - with a nice little HIS branding on the rear of the card, letting out some heat at the same time.




At the top of the R9 380X IceQ X2 Turbo 4GB, we have four gigantic heat pipes running throughout the card and its heat sink.




There's not much going on at the bottom of the card, but we do see the four heat pipes running into the rather large heat sink that spreads across the entire card - covering everything from the GPU to the VRMs.




At the end of the card, we have 2 x 6-pin PCIe power connectors.
