Hey. I bought my XFX 6850 3 moths ago, and it's been working great. It made a little bit of noise, but it actually pretty quiet. Yesterday, I had to shut down my computer after it being unable to come out of sleep mode. When I turned it on today it was making a lot of unnatural, weird noise, and it i'm not sure if there s somehting wrong with the fan or anything along those lines.

Thanks, Michael

Go to ATI CCC and set the fan speed to Auto or even manually set it to throttling it down... And make sure you check the card temps, it could be an overheating.

You should make sure your fan is clean and dusted out first and foremost. Regularly. (I use canned air carefully and regularly)

I would also look in the AMD overdrive tab and uncheck 'Enable AMD overdrive' and 'Enable Manual Fan control'. There should not be any issues with these default settings. If your fan is going South I'd look into a replacement card from from XFX.

Get Msi afterburner, It has a fan control switch.....
