I was fortunate enough to find a complete new fan assembly on eBay. It was marked as being for a 2080Ti. It should be here by this coming Saturday. The seller has an excellent reputation. I studied a blowup of the image. It matches what I have.

I could have ordered three new fans as a set. Caveat: I would not have received them until early April. They are in China. There was very little cost difference between the two choices. Based on my own past experience, I find any coming from China as being very suspect. They were listed as being 86mm in diameter, which is the same as mine.

In case the arriving cover does not mount the same, I can remove the fans and place them in the cover I have. While doing the fan removal, I found a redundancy. The fan closest to the mounting bracket has a single power connector on the board. The other two share a different connector by using a split cable. Half of the heat sink contact plate for the processor is under the single connector fan. The remaining part is visible.

There were many listings for 2080's. Very few were less than $1,000 USD. Some were as high as 1,400. I got the one I have for $690. Attached is an image of one fan I removed showing the sticker.
