Everytime I turn on my computer it makes a very loud and noticeable sound, which slowly dissapates.
My Rig: -AsRock 939 Dual-SATA Motherboard -AMD64 3200+ Oreleans CPU -1GB Generic RAM -ASUS 1950 Pro 256MB Video Card -Creative Soundblaster Audigy SE Sound Card -Maxtor 250 GB Hard Drive
The possible fans that can create this noise are: -The standard CPU fan -The Standard video card fan -A large front fan that came with my generic case -A 80mm fan on the back of my case -The 120mm fan in my PSU
The sound seems to be stonger in the back, although it could be just me.
The reason I suspect it's the PSU is because I had a similar case with an older computer a while back. I still had the warranty at my local store so a had it replaced, and the noise dissapeared.
Currently have the same sound, although milder, on an old Dell Computer.
I'm just doubting myself as I thought Silverstone is a good quality company.
Could this be the PSU? If not, what else could act the same way? Just bestranged that the sound goes away after awhile. Never returned a defective product using a warranty before. Advice?
Thanks in advance!

You need to isolate the noise by unplugging the fans. Some folks use a mild oil or other lubricant to quiet noisy units. I also use "perfect duster" a canned air product with solvent to clean fans.
usually the source is a cheap case fan - as suggested narrow it down and find the source
