I purchased a XFX Radeon 6850 and it arrived today. The card works perfectly fine apart from one little thing that I may be concerned about.
As it stands the card idles around 40C and under load its about 60C which im perfectly happy with.
But whenever playing a game, every few minutes the fan will speed up pretty intensely for around 30 seconds. I've looked at the temperatures to see if there is any abnormalities and there isn't any. I was just wondering what you think this could be and if the card is in any danger.
My friend who current has a 5970 says that his does it too and its nothing to worry about but im not too sure I believe him.
