    Default Weird clicking/ticking sound when PC is under load

    Hello all,

    Recently I've assembled my dream machine and now I'm experiencing some weird clicking/ticking sound coming from my case when my pc is under load. Anyone experienced something like this? Anyone know what could it be? A rough estimation?
    I can't record becuase it occurs randomly...

    You can't pinpoint where in the PC the noise might be coming from?

    It seems that it comes from front area of my case. I've checked all the wires and nothing seems to get in the way of fans blades...

    If you stop a fan, does the noise go away? Could just be a bad bearing.

    I had a weird noise from a CPU fan when the tower was upright, but not on its side. The spring loaded stem needed a bit of oil and the noise went away.
