    My HD 3870 just arrived and the fan speed is unbearable in OSX (haven't tried Windows but what's the point).

    I did forget to install the Mac software before installing the card like the instructions said but I didn't read that :eek: and common sense says software goes after hardware installation.

    Anyways, how can I fix this? Could the card be defective?

    Well, first you install the software (if you haven't already
    done so). Then, if the problem persists, you might wish
    to peruse this thread:
