i recently bought a sapphire radeon hd 7870 video card.i have installed it properly but when i boot up the fans don't spin.i contacted the vendor and the fans don't kick in unless the card is under heavy load.i was wondering if this is true or is the card damaged?
I suggest contacting Sapphire Tech. support for a definite answer (you'll need exact model/serial No.(& another I.D. No. from sticker on card?)).
