If so, have you experienced fan rattling with it before?
Yes. I do have slight fan rattling with the fans at a higher RPM (3000). It almost sounds like coil whine but I know it's not coil whine, because the only time my card makes coil whine is when exiting the Valley benchmark.
This was happening when I was mining with 70% fans. My case uses thumbscrews for the VGA cards. I took my rig apart last night to do some cable management. I made sure to actually tighten the thumbscrews as tight as I could using a screwdriver (they have slits for a screwdriver). So far, I haven't noticed any rattling since tightening the screws down hard. Not sure if it will come back or not.
