Question HELP! Why is my PC making this noise? And how do i fix it?


Jun 21, 2017
Hello!, i'm making this thread to hopefully find other people who may be experiencing this sound and/or knows what is making this sound.

I've noticed that my pc is making some wierd ''rattling'' (best way i can describe it) noises, this noise keeps re-appearing at random intervals, usually lasts for about 10-20 seconds at a time. The noise be completely gone for days or even weeks before re-appearing again.

I'm autistic and therefore really sensitive to sound, and this sound has started to drive me crazy. I've tried my best to identify where the sound have been coming from, but with no luck unfortunately..

Here is a bad recording of this sound i'm speaking of: (Shortened Soundcloud link!)

PC Specs:

  • GPU - MSI GTX 1080 Gaming X (NZXT Kraken x62 watercooled with help of the NZXT G12 bracket)
  • CPU - Intel i5 8600k (NZXT Kraken M22 watercooled, not overclocked)
  • MB - Asus B360-F GAMING
  • CASE Phanteks Eclipse p400s
  • RAM 2x8gb Corsair Vengeance 3000MHz
  • PSU Corsair RM650X
  • 2x SSD & 2x HDD
    And a lot of fans
Do you have any idea as to what is making this sound and/or how i prevent it from happening?
Thanks beforehand.
