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?

Hello sde444

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

Here is the noise what i am talking about:


I have the same rattle noise when fans coming to spin up. Afer a while noise is gone. So iguess its not normal?

I don't hear anything in the video, am I going deaf? 😄

If yours is making the same noise I can't hear I wouldn't worry about it.

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.

It gradually disappear. And its sound like this:

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.
