I am running an XFX Radeon 4890 graphics card. The card seems to work fine, but when the computer starts cold, ie. from sleep or turning it on first thing in the morning, the fan revs up very noisily. I mean, this thing sounds like a speedboat! After running for one or two minutes, the fan quiets down. My question is should I be concerned with this or is this nothing to worry about? Like I said, the card seems to work fine otherwise.
On a related note, the GPU temperature spikes at about 77-80 degrees celcius during WoW sessions. Is that a normal temperature or is my noisy fan not doing its job?
