Radeon HD 7970 Fan Issue?

February 18, 2013 4:29:24 PM

Having a strange issue. I just installed a new XFX Radeon HD 7970 Black edition. The performance is terrific but is acting kind of strange. Sometimes when I bring my PC out of sleep mode the 7970 fan will roar all the way up to 100% even though it is not doing anything graphically intensive. It will do this for about a minute or so then go back down to idle speed.

The strange thing is my old GTX 580 did the same thing. But that was on a completely different system. Along with the 7970 I also upgraded the mobo, CPU and did a fresh install of Win 7 on a new Samsung 840 SSD.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Is it normal? Can it be fixed? Thanks
