Question New Case Fans Sound Like Motors - CoolerMaster MB500 TUF

Bought a new case last week. I've had nothing but fan noise problems since boot.

Initially there was an audible whine that was dependent on the fan speed and what the system was doing. That went away briefly and the fans were perfect - silent.

Now? I don't understand what changed. I have this constant motor sound regardless of what I am doing. Whether gaming, booting, or doing nothing, the fans continue to make the same motor sound. Whether I set the fans to turbo or silent mode the motor sound is consistent so this motoring noise occurs regardless of system processes. I've attached some videos. You can hear the fan motoring nose in the videos although it is much worse in person. Even with thick headphones and youtube going I can hear the motoring noise so this is clearly unacceptable.

Thoughts?

I'm taking it to the shop today to see if they can fix it otherwise I'm returning it. I bought Coolermaster because my old rig (bought 10yrs ago) was Coolermaster and it was deadly silent.
