Question Middle GPU fan spins faster than the others?

Mar 13, 2020
Hey all,

recently I bought a KFA2 GeForce® RTX 2080 Super Work The Frames Edition.

Overall a great card, but have some issues with it that require me to run the card at 35 % fan speed in idle. I don't mind this in general because the fans are incredibly quiet at that speed.

However, I noticed that one fan always runs faster than the others. While the left and right spin slowly, the middle one runs slightly faster than them. When I check the software that came with it, these fans are labeled as turing fans and can be individually controlled. The middle one can't be adjusted. This also applies to trying a custom curve in MSI Afterburner.

I was just wondering if that's normal? Shouldn't they all be running at the same speed?
