I noticed that on my msi rtx 2080 super trio card the fans make a strange "rattling" noise even at the minimum speed of 24%
Is it normal or a defect and I can take advantage of the warranty?

Hi, I have the exact same issue with a 2080ti trio x, the issue has been there since I received the card, however only the small fan is affected. Just like you, the noise appears when the fan starts, and even at a very low rpm. I'm thinking of rma'ing the card as the noise is annoying.

Sounds a bit like the fans are grinding. Could be a bad bearing or something is in the way. I would also ram the card if nothing is obviously in the way.

Thanks for your answers. I'll ram the card and I'll let you know how the case ended.

So my card is back. They replaced whole cooler sytem. First day card was working fine and quiet. The next day strange noise came back ;(, admittedly it's a little less annoying. That hissing is It's a common noise for a ball bearing-type fans probably ;( . I think TORX fans 2.0 was better.
