i had this problem recently where my GPU fan not working properly, sometimes it stops
and sometimes when it spins it makes a high-pitch noise sound, but it became worse recently
the fan spins but the noise is way louder now and never stops.
it's the middle fan that is loose and i believe it makes that noise

(sry for the background noise)



i already ordered new fans from aliexpress and i might need to wait a few days before trying to replace them
i will try not to force the gpu too hard by not gaming or working on heavy software
although the temperatures are normal

i was wondering if i can use the pc normally... or if i should stop using it
until my fans arrive, can it damage the GPU badly if i keep using it?
it's a Gtx 1080 ti gaming oc 11g
