Closed X700 Heat Sink and Fan Tags: Radeon Heat Fan Graphics Last response: January 7, 2011 4:31 PM in Graphics & Displays Share tplarkin7 December 24, 2010 6:36:29 PM I noticed something strange with the fan and heat sink on an ATI x700 PCIe card. After replacing the fan, it makes noise on boot up. If I touch the heat sink with the tip of a screw driver, the fan immediately operates normally. Is this static buildup?

Share tplarkin7 December 25, 2010 1:42:38 AM You may be right, but I'm not holding it with the screwdriver. I simply tap the heat sink for a breif moment. Perhaps that's all that's needed to settle the card from vibrating. The next time I boot, I'll experiment to verify if it's just vibrating too much. Thanks!

On boot up, all of the fans blast at 100% which appears to be too much for the graphics card fan. Score 0 tplarkin7 January 7, 2011 9:50:02 AM Best answer selected by tplarkin7.
