In terms of temperatures, the HIS Radeon HD 4850 IceQ 4 TurboX idles at around 49°C and the highest temperature we witnessed during our testing was about 63°C. At this temperature, the fan spun up from the default 40 percent to between 60 and 75 percent, but still remained quiet enough for it to not be noticed above other system noise because of its low pitch. The differences between this version and the older model featured on the HIS Radeon HD 3850 IceQ 3 TurboX is that there's an additional heatpipe and an increased surface area for the fins the two heatpipes transfer heat to.
