HAF 922 Buzzing

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I searched around a bit but couldn't find anything. Basically, my HAF 922 will randomly start buzzing. I give it a good smack and it stops. If I had to venture a guess, I would say it happens maybe 5 or 6 times per day. I don't have a clue what it is. My assumption would be a fan or a drive, but everything is secured/installed correctly. I spoke with a friend who owns a 932, and he says it happens to him on occasion as well.

Has this happened to anyone else, and if so, did you ever get it sorted?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a vibration issue.. do you have any high RPM fans mounted onto the side panel?

Nope, just the stock fans. Front, top, back.

Is the 'buzzing' sound a vibrational hum or a noise that you can isolate from a particular area?

Thanks in advance.

Do you have multiple hard drives installed?

If so it "might" be hard drive resonance.

It would be helpful if you could fill in your System specs as well.

Yeah, sounds like vibration. My old P4 dell does it too. Does the HAF922 come with rubber feet or are they cheapo hard plastic?

Duckie: I can't really isolate it to a specific area. For all I know, it happens all the time, and every now and again overpowers the sound of my fans until I smack it. I'll fill in my specs in a bit. Basically an i3 530, a Spinpoint F3, OCZ 600w, GTX 460.

Nick: Just one hard drive.

Derp: Hard plastic if I had to guess. I'm not really sure how one looks/feels compared to the other.

They're rubber.

It's the side panel. My 932 also does it.

Although recently it hasn't been doing it. I think it's because the last time I opened her up I made sure to pull the side panel forward on the hinge towards the front and make sure that it was snug before I even tightened the thumb screws.

It's gotta be the crappy fans that they put on the case.
