HIS HD 5830 iCooler V Turbo

The HD 5830 is a full 10″ long card so you will want to make sure your case has adequate room.

After getting the card installed it was time to get down to some overclocking. Now we know the HD 5830 iCooler V Turbo comes overclocked from HIS, but who doesn’t like a little more? The first thing was to fire up MSI’s Afterburner program since ATI’s Overdrive utility tops out at 875MHz core and 1200MHz memory, which doesn’t leave us a whole lot of room with this card.

A great deal of testing and benching later I came out with a stable overclock of 945 MHz on the core and 1190 MHz on the memory, a jump of 105 MHz and 90 MHz respectably.

Temperatures really seemed on the warm side to me considering that it uses the same heatsink as the HD 5870 iCooler V Turbo and it performed well there. Overclocked temperatures only increased 2 degrees, and luckily there are ways to adjust the fan speed if these temperatures make you nervous. Under load testing the fan never increased above 35% usage which is still pretty quiet as to me even up to close to 50% it is not very audible. To me these temperatures are a little warm, and while it’s easy to adjust the fan speeds I don’t think you should have to.

Now that we have seen how far we can push the HIS HD 5830 iCooler V Turbo 1Gb card, we are going to throw it through some benchmarks. Below are the system specifications that will be used for testing.
