6800XT Midnight Black - Broken fan.

Hello guys, a couple of weeks ago I was able to catch a wild 6800xt MB, beautiful card but yesterday I finally realize that a strange rattling noise that I had initially associated to a new case fan was actually coming from the one of the 3 fan of the gpu *extremely sad face here*.

The card makes this noise every time the fan start spinning or increase the speed by a lot, when the rpm are stable i can't hear any particularly strange noise, but i don't have a good feeling about it, usually they get worse.

What should I do?I sent an RMA form from here https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/warranty-information/rma-form, do you think that they will be able to repair/send a new 6800xt MB or given how few of them we have they will offer a refound?Really worried about it.

Here is an audio clip. https://vocaroo.com/19pwkSG5pzPU

I would check the model and maker of the fan from a source as GamersNexus and order new fan from China. If you are not competent enough to change the fan yourself, you could try to seek help on that or just wait. RMA:ing the card at this point would be pointless imho, because there are no cards.
