    Asus Strix 980 Ti - small rattle noise when fans are spinning.

    Hello. Its my next topic here, but i am left only with one problem .My card is Asus Strix 980 Ti.When i am launch a game, and when fans ramps up, i can hear small rattle noise. Then after 5 second noise is gone. Is this normal or i must rma card?
    Should i be worried about this?
    No there is not any cables interfering. I checked it. So live with this or rma card?Its only small rattles for few seconds when fans are spinning , then noise is gone.

    Hello sde444

    That's something to take up with tech support, they will advise you if you should rma your strix 980ti or not.

    No the noise is not normal, get a hold of tech support and explain the problem to them.

    There's not much we can do for you here.

    The noise is only when fans are starting ( accelerating ). Then after a moment on higher rpm noise is gone and its ok. What do you think about it?

    It's a tough call, as long as it doesn't get any worse I might not worry about it, but if it does get worse then it's a problem. if it gets worse after the warranty period it's even a bigger problem.

    Now that you mention it ... my 980ti strix also rattles. It's the first fan and if I slightly push up the coolers housing it disappears.

    Seems like a grinding/rattling noise.

    I am sending mine back.

    I also did a quick sound record before returning the card so I have some evidence.
