Stock CPU fan noise

Hey all

I just built my first computer and everything went as smoothly as I could have hoped but the fan/heatsink on the cpu is emitting this sound which I think is strange however I have nothing to compare it to. It sounds sort of grating but high pitched and it is definitely coming from the cpu fan because pressing on the fan dampens the sound.

Is there suppose to be this high pitched grating whirl or is something wrong? Thanks!

I figured it out! It hit me when I wrote "grating"...it was the CPU fan hitting the power wires that were still wrapped around (stock intel)! I removed and twisted them up and now my new system is super quiet!

Please make sure the temps of your new pc are in the recommended range.

I don't actually know what's recommended but both cores are 35C or below while not doing much and fans on low.

my i5-2500 runs at 40C min idle

What is also important to note is your load temps.Run prime and see how it goes.
