Is this reason to RMA? I am worried. Listen to that noise.

Any strange noise coming from your GPU is a good enough reason to RMA.

Ok but maybe that noise is normal on fans?

Is the card new? It seems to me like one of the bearings is starting to go bad, which should not be happening to a card as new as a 700 series. The sound does not seem normal, and since you're unsatisfied/worried with it, I would RMA. Hopefully that will fix the issue and give you some peace of mind.

I would send it back for a replacement. The fans shouldn't sound like that.
