Fan Speed 32% to 43% results in weird noise

Good day all o/

 

I'm liking the GPU, at least so far, after 4 weeks. The software is pathetic but I'm gonna shut up and not do a huge rant about it....

 

Anyone can explain to me as to why after inserting Lexar NM620 to the M.2 slot next to the main GPU slot resulted in weird sound. it happens when it's at 32% to 43% (in that range) (tested with fixed control)

At first i thought it was HDD, so i unplugged it (power cable), but after the Arc control applies settings (fan curve) it starts to do that. some kind of resonance?

Thank you for reading, have a nice day o/

Turned on the PC few minutes ago and now the sound is heard at above those percentages I mentioned in the opening post

Ok, this sounds like the fan is touching the cowling. That it is happening in a specific RPM range is the interesting part. Regardless, you can try (very gently!) prying out the cowling a tad and see if the noise can be eliminated.
Hope this helps,

P.S. Visualizing, I can see this happening if you squeezed a GFX card as you installed it. IDK if this is the case; just that I could see it happening.

Seems like holding a vacuum close to the fan and making it spin (CW) fixed the issue.

Will popup here again if anything starts to happen but tat that time I will just call the shop (i have been buying there 10+years) and see if He can check it out.

Thank you for your reply 😁

Now i have to close this tab, because i cannot take this white background it burns my eye...
