Default Re: XFX 260 GTX XXX Fan issue at boot. Is it broken?

After rereading Your post I think it's not that the system is restarting 3 times. It's solely the videocard restarting three times.

Again: It's like - onomatopoeia:
wwwhhew- 2 sec silence - wwwhhew - 2 sec -- wwwhhew. After that everything works.

But my 7800 GTX has been much louder, so maybe the fan is not spinning at 100%.

Luckily with my new asus P58 + 8600 the issue has vanished. One short fanboost, a beep and ok. I will run some benchies soon.
It was really hard stuff to install the board. And no internet connection for 10 hour. At last I realised that the card did not align precisely. I'm broken now myself.

My 260 does the same. It sounds loud at cold boot but hits 40% on boot into XP. TBH my 880gts did as did my X1950XTX. I thought it was a common thing.

Is this a normal behaviour for that videocard?

In my view it's weird and I'm about to send it back.

What do You think?
Its an XFX so im sure its broken.

It is. I didn't report it as something wrong, but as what normal fan behavior is...
