I've had this card for 2 years and this problem just started. Is there anyway I can fix it other than an RMA?

    Should take a video of it so we can hear it.

    I'd hate to say it but I believe evga will want to exchange the whole card for the rma.

    If it comes to it.. ask them if you can just swap the coolers for it. As in they send you a card and you swap the coolers and send them back the same card but with your cooler.

    I wouldnt mind an RMA but I live in Canada so I'll have to end up waiting a while and paying $70 for shipping. I'll take a video when I finish work but I know it's only the first fan making the noise, is there no way I can lubricate it?

    If you peel back the sticker there may be an opening to the bearing there, or maybe not, it may be sealed.

    Sounds like a plan. Now I'm just looking for a video of someone doing it to a 1080ti ftw fan.
