Sounds like a bearing is worn & the fan is now off a degree or two...

Just swap it out, make sure you match the CFM to that of the stock fan or raise the CFM...

You can find better CFMs with lower dba to the stock fans in the V10 quite easily.

But if you go below the CFM of the oem fan, then you run the risk of running your TEC all day long or even worse causing some serious overheating & damage.

Take a look in the CM store for 120mm fans first obviously as we are in the CM Forums.

If you cannot find something to suit then there are a lot of places to buy fans online & man bricks & mortar stores selling 120mm fans too.

Hey, don't forget that you now also get to play with dif' colors if you go with LED fans as well...

Myself, I'd love to replace mine with either UV Reactive or UV LED 120mm fans.

Well, if you wanna pay for shipping, I can just send you my old ones. They were really only used during the beta, so they're good as new. Otherwise, I think the stock fans were rated at about 70 CFM, so anything around there should be fine.

These are pretty decent sound-to-performance wise.

If you have a pair of those I'd be more than happy to trade you the pair of OEM Red LED Jobbies from the V10.

As you know I have only had the thing for 1/2 a week.

I have other fans to go in the V10, so those you have would just go in another build.

I'm in DE so the shiping to you would not only be dirt cheap it'd pretty fast too.
