"When play the game , fan start to spin with high RPM. The noise sounds like coil whine , so I thought it was coil whine and ignore the sounds. Last night the noise got worse so check the card , and the sounds came from the LED cover. When I press the LED cover noise disappear. So it seems the fan may contact the LED cover on high RPM. For me it happen when card is under load so fan start spin. Around 70% of fan speed is makes the noise. I found the left fan makes the sound for me(to find out I have stop the fan with my finger)."
"I noticed the same issue on my 3090 Strix OC last night too.
I can replicate it 100% of the time by just turning up the fan speed with the card at idle. It seems loudest for me at about 65% and the middle fan seems to cause it more.
Pushing on the lightbar doesn't make it go away completely but does decrease the sound significantly. Unlike in your video it decreases the vibration sound when I push on the lightbar on the right hand side (power plug end) of the lightbar about a third of the way along. Pushing where you did does nothing for me.
In all other respects the card works fine it's just a ****ty design/QC."

Also took mine apart. All the screws and from the cooler to the shroud were loose. I tightened them.
And the most impressive thing... my Hot Spot temperature was 105Ã‚Â°C when the gpu temp was 72Ã‚Â°C.
Now after repasting, the Hot Spot temp is down 10-15Ã‚Â°C.
Never going to buy an ASUS GPU again

Shame that voids the warranty but glad you solved your issue. I'd love to know if ASUS improved their quality control for the TI release. Like you, never buying an ASUS GPU again

Earlier this year I sent my Strix 3090 in for the fan rattling issue. I was sent a new card as a replacement.
This card worked fine until about a month ago now. It started developing the same rattling issues as my first card. I thought about doing the "fix" where you stick paper under the shroud and against the heatsink but the new card is actually slightly different. The shroud is actually slightly elevated off the heatsink with washers so it'd take a huge chunk of material to "lift" the shroud up.
Not sure what I'm going to do at this point. This card is actually a monster of an overclocker and I doubt I'll get anything as good as this one.

Please kindly PM me the product SN.
It would be great if you still have the SN of the previous card as well.
