It seems that today's mid and high-end video cards are coming with increasingly more creative cooling solutions.  Lately, large, quiet fans are becoming more popular as seen with Abit's OTES, HIS's IceQ II and Sapphire's Lethal Cooling.  All of these options aim to keep a video card cool under load while minimizing fan noise, and in some cases, making it virtually non-existent.  There are trade offs to these designs, however, such as the occupation of a second slot, but often times the upside is a direct exhausting of warm air out of the case, lowering overall case temperatures.  In the end, the benefits outweigh the drawbacks and the end result can be both cool and quiet,...

  In January we took a look at the HIS X700 Pro IceQ Turbo because it piqued our interest with its somewhat unique cooling solution.  HIS took a page from the book of "OTES", which stands for Outside Thermal Exhaust System, a thermal management approach pioneered by Abit Computer, that has been out on the market in various incarnations for a couple of years now.  The HIS approach also employs a cooling scoop and shroud design in which a large fan at the rear of the assembly pushes air across the GPU and RAM heatsink plate, and out through a rear slot plate in the PC chassis.  While this design does consume two motherboard/chassis slots of real estate, the benefits...

It's been a little over six months since ATI first announced the All-In-Wonder X800 XT, but in the months following the announcement the card never made it onto retail shelves. It's no secret that ATI has struggled through some supply issues recently with their high-end GPUs. Since the time that we were first introduced to the card, ATI has also informed us that some aspects of the All-In-Wonder X800 XT's design took more work to perfect than the company had originally anticipated. This card incorporates some new technology that was previously not available on older All-In-Wonder products, plus it's based on a much more powerful GPU and has double the amount of memory as the previous flagship...
