Hey guys I've had my computer for about a month now and recently my fan has been making a weird noise while gaming, it seems to be coming from the top front fan in my system the noise only started happening with me today and I was wondering if anyone can by any chance be able to pinpoint the issue, I've attached a streamable link that will hopefully help with pinpointing the issue.

Use a long cardboard tube or even a rolled up piece of paper to carefully listen around the fans.

Try to find a specific source or location for the noise.

Inspect the area for dirt, debris, cables touching the fans, etc..

Gently tighten the top fan screws - that may make a difference. The screws may have just loosened up a bit.

While inside the case take a look at all other cables and components to ensure that all are fully and firmly in place. Components do creep loose over time due to heating, cooling, and vibration.
