When ATI released the Radeon HD 5670 last week they put a product on the market that allows for a little game play, a product that drives several monitors, a product that is excellent for generic desktop usage including usage with high-resolution monitors but also .. it created a nearly perfect HTPC graphics cards if you look at video decoding, acceleration and post processing versus performance and price.
The one thing we mentioned in the reference review however was the fact that the reference product is a tiny bit too audible for a HTPC (well at least for me .. I'm totally anal like that). So I was already expecting ATI's partners to release a product with custom cooling to keep them noise levels down a notch further.
Of course the minute when that popped into my mind I already received an email from the guys at HIS, asking us to review the Radeon HD 5670 equipped with their classic ICEQ cooler. And that equals completely silent noise levels versus good cooling at a fair price.
HIS product always have been grand in terms of price, performance and features. A company's products I'd purchase anytime over say a brand like Sapphire for many good reasons.
Suffice to say -- we'll be reviewing the HIS R5670 ICeQ today -- let's have a peek and then head on over to the review.
