Default fan buzzing noise

Hey guys, my computer has been making a strange buzzing noise, like a fan hitting something so im assuming its one of the fans. The sound comes randomly and will reside if i nudge the computer.

I didn't see a question in there... Just check the fans, make sure no wires are hitting them.

try tightening the fan screws to make sure its secure and not rattling against the case

maybe one of your fans is going out? in all, look in your case. use an air blower to clean them all up. turn on case and listen/watch carefully. keep all wires away from it, make sure it's all secure and snug.

its probably not that... he can fix it by hitting the case so its not a dieing fan, those usually squeal since the ball bearings or sleeve is lacking lube and thus makes a noise
