I just built a new PC yesterday, and I'm getting a weird clicking noise ( http://vocaroo.com/i/s0STH7DEQvFN ). I don't have an HDD or disk drive. All cables are away from the fans. Any thoughts?

Sick beat desu senpai.

>>51497795
record a longer version that song is sick
>>
>>51497784
It's one of your fans.
>>
>>51497784
It sounds like something is moving in your case(probably from lack of balance caused by fans), maybe the door is not completely shut or the fan has a bad bearing.

Also read the sticky you fucking faggot.

He went viral already?

>>51497810
The only fan that's running is my CPU cooler.
>>
>>51497832
Check the PSU, you mong.
>>
I should mention that I don't hear it at startup, only after running for about 5 minutes.
>>
>>51497784
maybe one of your screws is rattling O_O

or a wire is scraping against a fan?
>>
Just use your ear to locate the noise.
Like really?
>>
Record a minute long so I can make a remix pls
>>
>>51497795
>>51497807
This, don't keep that fire ass beat from us OP
>>
>>51498008
Help me find a solution, and I'll do just that. I think it may be from the PSU. If it's the fan, how would I stop the sound?
>>
unplug cpu cooler, if the sound stops its from the cpu cooler
>>

Looks like it was from the PSU fan. If there isn't an easy way to fix that, I'll probably wind up RMAing it.
>>
What PSU is it?

Thought it might be one of the Silverstone SFX models. They have a track record of various noise issues.
>>
>>51498578
Any known fix?
>>
What gpu you have? Evga gtx780 classified owners (me) complain about fan making weird noises but idk
>>

Honestly never had that sound ever.
sounds like a harddrive at first but then it sounds like a fan ball bearing lose.

PSU, Case fans?

Get a refund for that PSU A.S.A.P
>>
>>51498597
RMA it. It sounds like something's rubbing the fan inside the unit, so any possible fix would involve opening it up and voiding the warranty.

>>51498553
>>51498578
the only noise it should make is low white noise in form of a low humm

get rid of it then complain about it to manufacturers tell them the the fans they have in those models are faulty and to do a full recall.
That shit is not acceptable at all.
>>
>>51497784
It could be from your computer. My suggestion is to turn it off to stop hearing it
>>
>>51498767

>>51497784
Are you going to upload the full song?
>>
>>51497784
Optical drive or fan.
>>
>>51499069
This. Don't back out on us OP, we need you to drop that full track.

Try to listen where the sound comes from. I've had the same noise, and it was a faulty PSU.
>>
Open your case and touch various moving pieces of plastic and see if the sound stops, and of course be careful to not touch metal or you may electrocute yourself. So like if its a fan, oil it or something, if its a screw replace it, etc.
