280x Fan Oil / Rattle

Heya,

I've noticed now that my card fan shroud has been covered in oil from the fan and turning the fan speed up to around 70% produces a horrible rattle noise.

Should I be concerned and would this warrant an RMA?

Cheers,

If there is oil on the card and there is fan rattle, the card is defective, so RMA it.

Id look into an RMA mate, Iv'e been seeing a lot of this on various forums, and they have all been accepted for a return, well from what I've read any way.
