Default Antec 900 annoying niggle

Right had this case about 6-7months, got nothing bad to say about it but it has this annoying little problem where it sounds like the top 200mm fan is catching something and its like "tick. tick tick tick" as it goes round, ive had the side off while the pc was on but cant see anything that it could be touching so why isnt it silent?

Probably is catching on something. I have seen such a bad dust problem it has done a SIMILAR thing. Different sort of sound though. It doesn't really matter, when you stop hearing any sound, that's the time to worry.

Run an air duster through that old boy.

sometimes fans fail just like every other hardware, might just want to replace it. something internal might be making the noise thats why you cant see it.

Nobody makes the 200mm Fans. Well have you checked to see if any wires is touching it?

Ill probably end up trying to dismantle it so i can have a look at the fan itself, while its in place you cant really get your hand in anywhere especially with all my hardware in the case

Cheers for the suggestions so far though
