Since I've had it in I've had a room fan running because the weather has been so hot here. Tonight is the first night I've had it off and I am now hearing what I assume is the video card fan. It powers up and down a lot. Like if I was to stop typing this, let it set still it will power down and if I scroll with my mouse just a little bit it powers up faster then slows. Does this sound normal?
