Weird low rattle/noise sound on Asus ROG Strix 2070 Super. Is this normal?

Level 7
My GPU is only 1 month old. It makes a weird low grinding/rattle sound for a quick second when I turn on the PC and puts the fans to max levels but then goes away once the fans are in stable speeds. Also the same weird noise when I turn off the PC and the fans stops spinning. It wasn't like this when I first got the GPU

Upon further testing, when I set the fans manually from 20% and jump it to 60% or more, the same weird sound can be heard. More evident on the middle fan I don't hear the weird sound when the GPU is in vertical position but my setup is in horizontal.

I need to know if this is normal or could this be an early symptom of fans going bad overtime. The GPU is still in return period and I'll have it replaced if needed. Thanks!

Here's a video. I hope you can hear it:

If you pushed on the fan blades when you inserted the card you may have damaged the bearings or misaligned the plane of the blades.

Same problem, mine was the middle fan. Already sent it in for a RMA.
