XFX 6850 Weird Fan Noise?

Hey guys.

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.

Thanks. Luke
