This morning, I started up my PC and noticed the GPU fans spinning far, far faster than usual at idle. A few minutes later, my monitor went dark and I heard the PC reboot. No display came back. I turned off the PC, plugged my monitor into my onboard video, and rebooted. GPU fans still spinning at 100% but I get into Windows (using onboard video). Device Manager reports GPU is still detected. I shut down the machine, remove and reseat the GPU, remove and replug the PSU cable. Machine boots, fans no longer spinning at 100%, instead they "sputter," as in they begin to spin but then stop. I recorded a 10 second video here: 
I then removed the GPU and placed it in an older PC, different PSU, Moboard, RAM, etc...  symptoms are exactly the same. I also tried swapping the cable from the PSU to the GPU, no change.
 
Does this appear to be a video card issue?

    Have you ever seen fans do that before?

    New development...  I took the card and tapped sharply on the fans with my finger, put the card back in the PC, and lo and behold, it's working again. Obviously, I have no idea how long this "fix" will last. I wouldn't want to RMA the card only for it to be jostled in transit and temporarily "fixed." Anyone had experience with this sort of thing?
