[Frontpage News]HIS X1650 IceQ Turbo
« on: January 23, 2007, 03:35:52 PM »
The return rate on these video cards has been high, but naturally there are things that people have to consider:

1. They do not work in a 4X AGP motherboard (AGP version of the X1650). No POST is the common symptom for that issue.
2. Power requirements are a bit extreme at 350W or higher, especially for a mid-range card. A clean power source is required meaning that one cannot splice a connection from their hard drive or fans to power the card.
