I have a gtx 980ti from gigabyte (triple fan) and the right fan (furthest away from video ports) has broken bearings and vibrates while in use. I was wondering if i removed it until my replacement arrived would there be any bad side effects besides slightly higher temps?

You might want to apply higher RPM to other fans, but I don't think that something catastrophic will happen to your card.

Main system: i7 8700k 5Ghz / Asus Prime Z370-A / Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3000Mhz / Asus TUF RTX3080 / EVGA 750W GQ / Fractal Design Meshify C

Unless you plan to remove 1 Fan from a 1 Fan card that would be bad :D

 

In all honesty though: i Removed a single broken fan from a Triple Design on some old R9 Series card and it worked fine even with stock RPM speeds for em. Maybe run some benchmarks with thermals on display and adjust Fan Speed Curve accordingly.
