Closed 7870 Fan Speed Tags: Graphics Cards Fan Speed Graphics Last response: October 3, 2012 8:20 PM in Graphics & Displays Share HopelessNoob a b U Graphics card September 27, 2012 1:11:23 AM Hey so I just got the 7870 and noticed that when I run the fans at 80% or higher it kind of pulses? I don't really know how to describe it but it kind of pulses and is not steady. Is that normal?

If there is a problem, then you can RMA it, and get a new one. HopelessNoob a b U Graphics card September 27, 2012 1:30:19 AM it's what i feel on my case (the vibration increases then decreases at a pretty fast and steady pace) when i get the time i'll check it in afterburner later Related resources XFX Radeon HD 7870 extremely loud, cant control fan speed - Forum Radeon 7870 fan speed ? - Forum New Diamond 7870 Crash, Sound Loop, Fan 100% - Forum GPU FANS NOT WORKING (GiGABYTE RADEON 7870 WF3x) - Forum Normal graphics card idle fan speed - Forum Can't find your answer ?
