Default Case Vibration

I get some really noisey case vibration and i cant tell where its coming from, i have put these dampners/silicone covers on the fans and round the screws on the psu, but i'm still getting it.

Might be the power supply or one of the case panels are not snug enough.

If a heavy object stops it I'd guess that it's a loose rivit somewhere holding the case together. fans are generally screwed in place, so weight on the case should have no effect on that. But a loose rivit could be silenced if the piece of the case was pusing down on it.

I have seen a few times. Normally if I tighten a few screws or clean out a few fans, i am all right.
