Is this a known issue? Today one of the fans sounds like a failed bearing. Any reasonable fixes available?

Most reasonable fix would be having it fixed under warranty? Card carries a 3 year warranty and the 2080 Ti FE has not been out for 3 years, therefore, it should be under warranty....

give it a couple flicks while its running and check for sagging power cables behind it. then rma or request they ship you a new fan(s).

The warranty for the FE nvidia cards is actually pretty good as well. They'll likely just cross-ship you a replacement card.
