Hi. I have just installed this in my new build. I began hearing a faint fan noise from the third fan located closest to the power inlet of the gpu.
The noise is as if a fan is rubbing very lightly against something.
I noticed that this fan runs at normal speed, but also tends to show down and do a start-stop kind of thing with mother usage.
Is this normal for a big gpu with 3 fans or should I return it/rma it?
Thank you.
