Question Gigabyte 3060 TI making rattling sound when fans turn on/ramp up

Hello,

I purchased a pre-built computer with a Gigabyte 3060 TI Eagle. I started to notice that it makes a rattling sound when the fans turn on/ramp up. When the fans are off on the GPU, there is no noise at all. The sound only occurs when the fans are on. Sometimes it consistently makes the noise (seems to be when the fans turn on and off consistently with this strange fan curve), whereas other times it occurs randomly/intermittently once and disappears (seems to be when the fans turn on and stay on) . It does not appear to affect the performance of the GPU but the sound is a concern/annoying. I have checked the fans to see if they are hitting any wires and for loose screws - found nothing. I have the option to bring the computer back to the store to diagnose the problem, but would like to avoid this if possible as the turn around time is close to 3 weeks.

Does moving the 8pin power wires to the backside, away from the fans help at all?
Gave it a try but sound still persists - although maybe slightly quieter? Were you thinking the tension from the power wires may be leading to the sound?
