If I stop the fan with my finger the clicking usually stops for awhile but it will eventually make its return.
Anyone have any idea what this may be. I do not think the fan is coming into contact with anything but instead feel it may be something internal. Any clues or fixes? Or should I just swap out the fan completely?
Thanks guys

Whoa I have the same problem, it only happens sometimes but when it does it's very annoying.

An even more annoying problem is one of the fans on the drive bays. Every minute or so it will slow down to almost a full stop and then immediately start spinning again as if nothing ever happened. It only lasts a second, by the time I've turned my head after noticing it stop from the corner of my eye (only notice it when it's LEDs are on) it's moving again. This made me doubt my sanity for a while, until I kept looking at it for a couple of minutes, it keeps happening.

Anyone have a clue what's causing this?

In the Spirit of Apollo 13, Where the problem was how to fix a problem with what you have available. They could not go to the hard ware store and buy something. They had to be innovative and use anything that they had around. That was the way I approached the Fan problem on the Top of the STORM TROOPER HANDLE PROBLEM. So I thought and though and obsessed and this is what I came up with.

could have fabbed you up a piece of steel the same shape and bends as the other and powdercoated it for you as well, one of the joys of being part owner of an auto shop wink.gif
looks good though good to see others coming up with great ideas

I did it this way so anyone with tools and some experience can Fabricate it with what is on hand only. Sure body shop Fabrication is great and will be better than this. But any person that is good with thier hands can do this one. That's why I did it this way.

you have a wire touching the fan blades.. just find it and move it.. and your good.

Or you have a bad fan. If you have double checked nothing is rubbing the fan you can try to re oil it or get with CM to get a new fan. You may just want to get with CM first, if they want the old fan and see the back sticker peeled up they may say you messed it up. One other thing how fast do you have the fan running? I don't own this case, but maybe the fan controller is not putting out enough juice to keep it going so it's in that area where it's running but stops and starts. Most fans have pretty wide tolerances, 10% is about the norm., then add in the tolerance for the fan controller, you may just have a bad combo. Just throwing ideas out there.

Ok guys you have been a great help so far. But do the 3.5 cages able to be fixed into the top 3 5.25 bays. This will help with my cooling of the cpu and be an easy fix instead of trying to mount a 120 fan in the 5.25 bays. Hopefully it will be just a slide out an slide in job.
