Fan starts when screen blanked

Question asked by mike_coreit on Aug 13, 2015

Hi I have a Radeon R7 250X (manufactured by Sapphire, P/N 299-1E252-300SA).

The graphics card itself works fine, and has done ever since I purchased it about 8 months ago. However I have a question about the fan:

 

It seems whenever the power save turns off the display this causes the fan on the video card to stop, then periodically (about once a minute) the fan will spin up for about a second then stop - this causes a 'whooshing' noise.

 

My question is this normal behaviour for the fan or might this cause problems if left alone?

 

I am running Windows 7 64-bit SP1, driver version 13.251.0.0

 

Thanks
