Graphics card fan: should it be spinning?

  aca 20:14 30 Aug 2006

Got a used Winfast Ti500 Geforce 3 from Ebay for a superbudget pc.(from good feedback seller)

I tested it by swapping with a different brand Ti500 in another PC.

On the Winfast card the fan doesnt spin from boot, the other cards fan does.

Do some card fans only kick in when card being stretched, if Y is this likely with the Winfast Ti500?

My thoughts are that there is a fault.
