    HIS IceQ 3 The best air cooling solution
    • HIS IceQ 3 is the 3rd generation of IceQ cooling technology which is endorsed by worldwide media. HIS IceQ 3 innovative design doubles the strength of its predecessor.
    • Innovative design: Significantly improves cooling performance and reduces weight.
    • Heatpipe with sintered powder wicks: Heat is rapidly transferred from the core area reducing the GPU temperature.
    • Isolated heatsinks: Memory and GPU heatsinks are completely separated, preventing any heat transfer from GPU to memory.
    • Bi-directional air in-take channels: Cool air is drawn from both sides of the fan. Improving airflow. This ensures effective cooling even for CrossFire platform.
    • Ultra silent and durable fan: Significantly reduced noise level and extended service lift.
    • Dual-slot cooling design: Directly exhausts hot air out of PC case

    These are the cards that werent quite good enough for a 3870, but too good for a 3850. So, they sell them as a "TURBO" card :laugh:

    So you're saying Radeon x1950 pro coolers are compatible with the HD 3870? D'you think they are also compatible with the HD 3850?

    yep, same mounting holes.
    the only problem is that the very back of the cooler protrudes a bit out of the case.
