I’ve been using this card for a long time, but when i tried it out first time the card made loud noise on idle and on load.
I’m currently having 1 browser with a video going on at the background and the temperature is about 63-80 celcius. Occasionally the fan goes insane, making sounds like a helicopter. I guess i don’t need to mention about playing…
I thought it might be because of my case, so i went on and bought a new one. Made proper cable managing, applied extra fans and so on, but that didn’t cure the problem.
I also did the trick you told in this post: http://insights.club-3d.com/thread/club3d-radeon-hd-7870-joker-fan-going-crazy/ – But still no help.
There is no dust and i have replaced the thermal paste several times.
Any clue what is going on?
