Hi all! Last october I built myself a new PC with a V750, and it's been running flawlessly. Yet, last week, something started to make a rattling / grinding noise. After some investigation I narrowed it down to my PSU. I have it mounted at the bottom, fan-side down, as it's supposed to be (Fractal Design S). If I tilt the case, the noise gets a little bit louder, until a certain point, and at a certain angle the sound stops. I tried looking inside the PSU with a flashlight (through the ventilation holes and the fan grill), no wire seems to touch it, and it also doesn't seem to grind against the casing. I tried mounting it fan-side up, and it's completely silent again (checked it; fan running). So I'm pretty sure it's a faulty bearing. Although mounting it fan-side up does kinda solve the problem, it's now taking in air almost directly from the graphics card, which isn't optimal. I don't know what the dangerous temps are for a PSU, and I don't want to find out. It's probably fine, but the cable routing is worse now, and I'm not too happy about the PSU drawing in hot air. So, after some browsing, I found out about the glorious V-Series Replace service, and I was wondering if this is a valid reason for an RMA? I've put a lot of attention (and money) towards a silent PC, and having the fan running louder than it needs to (mounted the wrong way around) or having that annoying grinding sound (mounting it the right way) isn't why I spent a little more on a good PSU... Thank you in advance for answering! Also, ask away if you want to know anything else.
Hi, I have an CM690III , but there is some vibration noise (due to the fan's in the system - three: CPU, FRONT 220mm, BACK 160mm) The noise seems to originate from the front plate and\or from the side panels. If it is the front plate, then I'm inclined to blame the BAY plates. If it is the side plates, then I'm inclined to blame the side-pvc window. The type of noise is that caracteristic of plastic-metal vibration. It is not from the HDD (only one in the build), if I remove the front plate the vibration (the most agressive one) seems to go away. If I just remove the front plate, there is a light 'huming' sound. If I remove both side plates and the front plate, then there is no vibration sound at all. If I touch the chassis or press it in some way, the vibration goes away. After sometime the vibration cease to be. What can I do to fix this issue? Rubber feets? cork sheets? glue? etc Any ideas are welcome. Best regards, FÃ¡bio R.
