Hi,
 
I cannot find any info on product pages, manual, etc. about whether the fans from the RTX 3060 XC Gaming 12G-P5-3657-KR are sleeve bearing, ball bearing, or something else. The website doesn't even let me submit a ticket without a product registration and the question has been ignored on Twitter several times. Can you please assist?
 
Thanks.

    Not good kind, several are making grounding sounds. As to exact manufacturer search the forum people have talked  about them before.

    Good to know. I canceled my order of RTX 3060 XC Gaming 12G-P5-3657-KR. Are the 3070 cards equipped with better bearing from evga, and which one?

    Can confirm, my EVGA RTX-3050 constantly makes horrible grinding sounds when it spins up for 3 seconds and then stops when just idling. I assume it's an issue with it taking barely enough power to necessitate turning on the fans but it only lasts for a few seconds before it goes below that threshold.
     
    I probably could fix it if I put in the effort of downloading EVGA's software and messing with the fan curve settings but I'm too lazy and I just get used to it, hopefully EVGA uses a different kind of bearing in the future. 

     
     
    The GTX-1050 TI is extremely underrated, and no one can tell me otherwise.
