    Default HIS R9 280 IceQ X2 Review

    Today we're looking at the HIS R9 280 IceQ X2, a mid-range performance graphics card that retails for around $260. We've been impressed with cards from HIS in the past, particularly those with the vaunted IceQ cooler, which has proven to be very impressive with low temperatures and noise levels. Can this card continue the trend? Lt's take a closer look at the HIS R9 280 IceQ X2 to find out.

    Great review Jake.
    Excellent graphic card (price, performance, design, low noise...), if I want to be picky, I don't like the colors (blue PCB and creamy heatsink cover).

    Always look beyond the limits...

    great review Jake. Solid Midrange card. I would have to paint it so it could work with my builds. But I know someone that has a goldish theme that might like it.

    I have one of these HIS IceQ X2 R9-280X OC cards. It's in crossfire with an ASUS R9 280X DirectCU II Top.
    Both of them together provide some very good frame rates at high settings.
    I really like them together.


    Good review Jake
