HIS has designed a new cooler called IceQ X. It comes with a light blue transparent plastic shell that conveys an "ice block" feeling. In our testing we saw low idle and load temperatures, evidence that the cooler does a good job. The card also comes with increased clock speeds out of the box to gain some extra advantage over the reference design.

The new W1z aviatar rocks... reminds me of Asterix and Obelix comics, thumbs up.

No mention of firm-mod for the card, I'm sure that's a prickly topic.

I don't understand, what does the score in 3dmark11 represent? is it the avg fps from one of the game tests or from all of the game tests ?

Good card. But I wonder why Overclocked Performance is tested in call of duty. Please test gains from OC in more demanding games such as Metro 2033, Aliens vs. Predator etc, or there will be no need to compare. There is absolutely no difference between 101 and 114 fps.

When are you going to give up 1024*768 for all cards?
It's way outdated, and whoever has a monitor with such a resolution won't spend the money on most videocards you tested?
It is utterly useless to see how a 6850 (or GTX580) scores in 1024*768 , and it also eats your testing time.
