Try loosening the metal fan shroud on one corner.

One of mine did the same thing. It was the fan blade tapping against the shroud when really cold. After loosening, 3 years on it's still working perfectly (and silently).

rattling or clipping sound coming from my PSU.
Hi, I just noticed today that there seems to be a rattling or clipping sound coming from my power supply unit. It sounds like perhaps the fan is hitting something or clipping something. It's intermittent not continuous. What do you think could be causing this? it's a Corsair 550W PSU that I...

Hard drive won't stop rattling
