Re: XFX 260 GTX XXX Fan issue at boot. Is it broken?
It is normal for the card's fan to start up at full speed and then slow down. It should only do it once and then go on. It could be the way your motherboard or power supply interacts with the card making it start up multiple times. It would seem to me almost like the system would have to be restarting twice after it powers on. Can you try the card in another system? Give a system spec run down.
