 Does anyone know if this rear fan on this Direct CU 290x card is supposed to be slightly bent like this ? Ive owned several other 290x brands and I've never seen this before. Fan spins at the proper rpms....should I be worried an or set up an RMA?
Any thoughts appreciated ! Sorry.. Phone pic hosting is buggy.. ��.

From the pictures you can see the fan is slightly tilted. Probably 2mm lean.

Does it make any noise? If you dont mind the downtime then set up a RMA. If it doesnt make any unusual noise at high speed then you are just fine.

It's completely silent. I've seen older gpu's with this anomaly but not higher end cards. I guess I can live with it ....I was hoping this was done on purpose by Asus...some ultra elete cooling method. : p heh guess I'm just too hopeful. Thanks for the response guys.. :)
