Case Vibrations.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
When my PC is in idle the case does not rattle and make weird noises.
If i stress the CPU and GPU whilst playing a game, i'm guessing due to the heat, the case will rattle and i need to hit the case to stop the rattling ever few minutes.
Could this be what i presume? The radiator is heating up and it tends to vibrate? The pump is getting to hot?

I don't want to have to take it apart as at the moment i cannot be bothered taking it apart.
Thanks in advance guys, who ever solves this gets a cookie.

you cant be bothered to open it up but you want to fix the issue..

what???

stop being a nancy, open it up and check to see if one of your fans is causing the issue -.-
if the fans pick up speed when your computer temps rise, they could cause vibrations but we arent going to be able to help you if you "cant be bothered" to actualy look...

To your presumption, certainly! It would be possible for some metal is heating up, expanding and changing it's harmonic vibration sweet spot enough to make it make noise. Or some fan could be speeding up to compensate for the heat. Since you have water cooling, I imagine the PSU fan or a chipset fan.

Regardless, to solve the issue, you could look into material like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811999222

It goes on the side panels and I stick the extra bits in the front panel and other places (Pictures of this coming at some point). There are other sound dampening methods you could try, but this one solves enough points of vibration that I have a bit of faith in it tongue.gif

Let us know what you do and I'll post back if I think of anything else! thumb.gif

Thanks for this! Definitely look into buying.
Too the 1st poster, it takes me about 3-4 hours to put it together again, i really cannot be bothered nor have the time.
