I have seen bad bearings start to rattle(defect). Some fans make a very slight ticking noise, but it is very quiet(so quiet you need to be right next to it) and it normally happens when you are controlling the speed. My guess is bad bearings. RMA if you can. Reply to nukemaster FatalxShadow July 14, 2013 8:09:43 PM nukemaster said:Sometimes it is a fan failing or defect while other times it may just happen to be a cable hitting it.

Now that you mention that, I have a power supply fan do that 2 times in the past. Not even thinking about it, I just swapped the fans out.
