MSi 2080 Gaming X Trio Fan problem

So I bought one from Best Buy and the middle fan doesn't seem to come on. The one on the end works fine and the small one kicks on once a certain temp is reached. The highest temp Ive gotten to is about 63 degrees

Took the card back to another BB and got it swapped out for another and It's doing the same thing. Am I just not getting it hot enough or is there an issue? Any help would be great.

The fans usually are off under 60C I believe. If you’re only getting 63C, they’re just getting started, lol

I have found this with my Asus STRIX on air too. My middle fan doesnt spin below 65*C. Also, I really dont care because it isnt thermal throttling and its going on water next month anyway. But I think that is your answer.

Got it up to 67 degrees and still nothing on the middle fan. I even manually upped them to 100% in MSi Afterburner, hear fans ramping up but middle one is still just sitting there. No movement.

Set the fans manually to 100% and tried spinning the middle fan with my finger and the fan started to move by itself but with a noise that fans shouldn't be making. Restarted my pc to see if it jostled something free but it's back to not moving at all again. Ive got a support ticket open with MSi at the moment but it looks like I got 2 straight 2080's with bad middle fans.

So I spend $800 on a top of the line card and they won't even pay my shipping to RMA it? Let alone go, what, 2 weeks without a computer because THEIR **** doesn't ******* work? What a joke. Going to swap it out at another best buy and if that doesn't work I'm getting something off Newegg.

Jeez. No bueno at all. Sorry to hear about this. I have had a few MSI cards and have not been overly impressed with their customer support. Their cards, however, have always been pretty good to me.

So I swapped it again at another Best Buy. Fan doesn't come on but I'm having a hard time getting it to 65 degrees. I'm running a youtube vid on one monitor and a GPU stress test on the other and still doesn't get to 65.

It seems crazy to me that 3 straight cards would all have a bad fan being the middle fan. Anyone have any other ideas on how to test this thing properly?

Heaven

I found the problem.

I am a very large idiot. Built many PC's in my day. This one however, is the first that I've ever used a GPU bracket (comes with the 2080) to help support the card. Turns out a piece of the rubber that contacts the card was far enough in the way of the fan that it wouldn't run. Moved it aside and manually set the fans and voila.

This bracket doesn't really seem to fit however, it's kind of awkwardly shaped and theres not alot of room for the rubber to contact the card to actually hold it up. I had it where I had it before because it was really the only place it would go.
