Problem with powercolor hd 7870

hey i have recently purchased a powercolor hd7870 2gb myst edition (http://ncix.com/products/?sku=78372) on ncix, when I tested the gpu, first, the gpu fan will start turning, and then stop, after i give it a little push, it will start turning again without problems, this happens everytime when i start my computer. Also, the gpu has coil whine issue, I heard from other sources that it is not a big issue affecting the life expectancy of the card, but I would like to hear you guys' opinion
thanks

  1. Coil whine is normal. They can be heard on motherboards and psu as well.

    About the card, if you don't give it a push, will it spin later? Did you get any display and if you did, are temps normal during gaming?
