I have just bought a new MSI Ti4200 64mb with 4x AGP DVI TV-Out. The problem is that when I boot my pc I hear a clicking sound (I think it?s the graphics card fan on the heatsink) but after about 30 seconds the noise goes! Should I be worried about this? Do you think I should try to get in replaced in case it gets worse?
Is there a way I can check the temp so I can make sure its working ok?
I get 8,600 3DMarks on 2001SE benchmark (Althlon XP 1700+ 256mbram 40gig the above FX)
I?m worried that the graphics card might either get worse, fail or is not working 100% right!
all i can see is that all fans are working ok i think it must be the new graphics card as i have only just put it in and the rest of the system is at least as old as october 2002 if not older. Thats unless i knocked something which is possible although unlikely
Assuming no cables are touching any of the fans when it's closed up then I suppose its possible the gpu fan is touching something on the card until it settles down. Does the noise go away if you put the old card in?
