The Wraith CPU Cooler has actually suited me decently well, keeping my temps much lower than the stock AM3 cooler ever did, but I’ve encountered a weird issue. It seems that when the CPU gets to around 50 C or so, it starts making an odd clicking/grinding noise. It’s worth noting that this isn’t constant, instead the noise just happens every few minutes or so for random lengths of time.
I’m not positive that it’s the CPU cooler (since opening the side panel to try and find the source cause the noise to just stop), but it seems to be coming from there. There’s no obstructions going into any of my fans at all, so I’m unsure of the cause.
Has anyone else encountered this issue at all? Granted, I’ve seen people complain about noise, but the actual fan noise is perfectly fine, it’s just this grinding sound that makes any significant noise.
