lots of time I'm hearing an abnormal rattling sound especially during PC activity. its not coming from HDD neither GPU because i've unplugged both and the rattling sound was still there. also its not coming from PSU. so its either coming from CPU or motherboard.
i took my case out, opened it and put it on its side.. i think the CPU fan blades are kinda touching the heat sink slightly, when i spin it with my hand it doesn't spin freely and makes a rattling noise. however, when the case on its feet and i spin it with my hand it spin freely without any noise!.
thats kinda strange, because if it does spin freely without any noise by hand.. where does this sound come from when my PC is on?
now I'm tilting the case 30 - 40 degrees on its left side, it has been a day and no noise until now. why do you think this noise disappeared just by tilting the case?
and do you think this could be a permanent solution?
if not, is there any fix for it except replacing the fan?.. because recently i've replaced lots of things, so I'm looking for a fix at least temporarily for a decent time.
i have intel stock fan. temps are good at both idle and load, with the usual RPMs.
