IceQ – Cooler, Quieter
IceQ ensures effective cooling when there is another card in front blocking the fan inlet, such as in CrossFire setup. By expelling the hot air, IceQ removes all the heat generated by the GPU out of the computer chassis, prevents the hot air from accumulating inside and enhancing the overall stability. The more crowded the chassis, the greater will be the impact. The demonstration shows that the IceQ does outperform the 3rd party cooler in closed environment. Cool air is drawn from both sides of the fan and hot air is forced out of the computer case. This ensures effective cooling when there is another card in front blocking the fan inlet, such as in CrossFire setup.

Black Hole Impeller
Black hole impeller ensures large amount of cool air is ready. It draws cool air from both sides of the fan even there is another card blocking the fan inlet on the front
With IceQ, the card is cooler than the reference cooler.
IceQ is one of the quietest coolers. The card is below 28dB when watching movies, surfing Facebook, working. The card remains quiet whether you are gaming, online socializing or entertaining.
- The super large 80 x 21.5mm single blower fan draws massive amount of cool air to cool the GPU directly.
- 2x 6mm plus 2x 8mm wide heatpipes optimize cooling performance by removing heat from the core area.
- The extra large 35 x 28 mm copper heatbase provides a large heat dissipation area.
- The card also features fan control and fan monitoring, you are able to read fan speed & Asic temperature from CCC or software.

I have a HIS R9 270 right now and I love it, But with games growing so fast I am going to upgrade in a few months to this HIS R9 280, The 3GB of V-Ram plus extra GPU power will be exactly what I need. HIS in my opinion makes the best AMD GPU's and they are always priced very competitive. So this HIS R9 280 IceQ OC 3GB GDDR5 will be my Next GPU.

HIS has won over 1700 awards with AMD graphic solutions from major media worldwide.
•presence of factory overclocking;
•digital power subsystem;
•efficient and quiet in everyday use proprietary cooling system IceQ;
•excellent overclocking potential of GPU and video memory.”
EasyCom - The Choice of Overclockers
“The company's products HIS associated with excellent cooling. Received the medal for testing many samples of its products, for example, HIS R9 285 IceQ X2 OC (H285QMB2GD), HIS R7 250 iCooler Boost Clock, HIS R7 250 IceQ Boost Clock, HIS R7 260X iPower IceQ X2 Turbo and others. Particularly pleased with excellent implementation of a turbine-type coolers (eg, HIS R9 270X IceQ Boost Clock (H270XQ2G2M) or HIS R9 280 IceQ OC (H280QC3G2M)), which combines high performance, low noise emission and emission of hot air out of the system housing. Therefore, the award "Excellent cooling", we decided to award it the company HIS.”
EasyCom - Brand of the year 2014! Excellent cooling
“Second representative in this comparison is the HIS Radeon IceQ R9 280 OC. In terms of cooling, the manufacturer can come up with a surprise, but more on that later.
The first question can be answered R9 280 IceQ OC clearly with the HIS Radeon. The radial fan is quiet and cools very well. In addition, he also leads that the waste heat is blown out of the PC case.”
“Very good performance and overclocking”
