swapped in 2-3tb Toshiba internal hard drives, an r9 380x gpu, Asrock H170m mobo, G Skill 16gb ddr4 ram, i5 6600 cpu.
Ok, I have been having this problem for weeks. My pc, whether it is horizontal or vertically standing, whether the side casing is on or off, whether it's on wood or carpet, emits a low humming noise. It's the normal vibrating metal on rubber noise, around a b flat on the musical scale.
I thought it was caused by the new psu I had put in the rig, so I refitted the rig with my old Corsair Cx600, and the noise is the same. It's like a revving up. It vibrates low, then ramps up over like 708 seconds, maintains that level, then drops off at about 10 seconds after starting. Over and over again.
When I push fingers down with decent force onto the top of the frame, the vibration stops a good deal, but the underlying noise is still there. When I take my fingers off, it comes right back.
It's not my chassis fan, cpu fan, gpu or it's fans, and cant be the psu considering I've tried it with 2 separate ones. I've put pressure on every area of the inside of the case, hoping to see some panelling was bent or something, to no avail.
So, since this rig barely has any of it's original parts, should I just take all of my parts out of this case, buy a new case for like 30-40 bucks, and go that way? Or is there something else I can do to rid myself of this annoying ass noise?
If you think just getting a new case is the right option, could someone maybe recommend a good case for my build under 50 bucks?
