HIS Releases HD 5770 Fan Graphics Card

HIS released a custom-design graphics card based on the ATI Radeon HD 5770 GPU, part of its generally cost-effective "Fan" series. The HIS HD 5770 Fan 1GB (H577FL1GDG) uses a GPU cooler which uses heat pipes to transfer heat to a circular aluminum fin array surrounding a fan. Unlike with older Fan series models (such as the HD 4850 Fan) which had seemingly skimpy cooling, HIS placed a plastic shroud on top of the cooler. It uses reference AMD clock speeds: 850 MHz (core), 1200 MHz (memory), and sports 1 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 128-bit interface. Connectivity includes one each DVI-D, HDMI, and DisplayPort. It is expected to be priced around $140~$150.

They could make it more cost-effective if they stop putting plastic shrouds that have no purpose .

^ and I am still personally not convinced that an aftermarket cooler is going to make more than a minute difference on an oc with these cards. They just don't run that hot.

I don't know there's always room for improvement after all.

The coolers that were on the last gen cards were the bare minimum also, and with after market they still overclocked, the same will apply to this generation.
Unless they've magic'd the GPUs then fair game to ATI :p

Now that is the cooler ^ LOL!!!

Yeah, but this oem cooler is way better (or a better fit for the card) over the older oem coolers, not to say it is the greatest..... but it gets the job done. I don't think an after market cooler would make as much difference as it did with my old 3870. One thing for certain I don't think it is worth the effort of a DIY unless it is liquid cooling.

Aye perhaps, but if you have a HR-03 GT laying around or one of the Arctic Cooling GPU coolers why not eh :p

*edit* my god , that is cooler! They were obviously inspired by the bat mobile esque original cooler!

Amazing :D

A+ to that. I would love to remove the shroud on the egg cooler... but I think it serves a purpose if there are 2 cards in crossfire... I would need to do a smoke test on it to be sure.

the real purpose was to redirect the airflow onto the VRM and ram modules , yes that might help a little , but since those do not have any heatsinks ( can`t be 100% sure , but i`m pretty sure about that ) , basically the shroud is pointless . If the fan was bigger i would understand that theory . Not to mention the fact that half of ram modules are on the back of the pcb and do not get any cooling at all . Another purpose of the shroud would be to protect the components from potential damage , but it looks really flimsy to me . So , pointless ? YES!
Anyway it`s nice to see that non-reference cards are coming , good or bad ones , but i expect better from HIS .

Their IceQ coolers are awesome so what is shoddy about their cooling exactly?

This isn't one of those coolers.

This is an egg cooler with a nicer shroud and a blue fan.
