As the title states one of my fans on my R9 380 started acting up recently.  The noise coming from it is incredibly loud and sounds like its grinding on something.  I have fully taken the card out and cleaned it / confirmed the fan is not touching anything.  The fan is actually not spinning that fast.  The  other one is spinning quickly and quietly.


I have installed the most recent drivers.  The card is only a year old.  Any thoughts?
