To get the cover off after you unscrew all the screws you gotta undo all these little latches all around the cover.Their like plastic push tabs.

Mine makes the same noise.I think it's fan wire.Once you take the cover off you'll see what I mean.Mines been doing it for months.Nothing to worry about but if you want to fix it you can get some electrical tape and tape the fan wire down.Remember while your handling the card to avoid touching the contact points.Also remember to ground yourself before handling the card to avoid ESD.

Yah it feels cheap like plastic does.Don't be afraid to give a little force,I used a flat head screw driver for those.Since it's the first time their being used it will be more difficult until you wear them in.

Also as I've said before be careful when your applying force especially with a screwdriver so you don't loose grip of it and damage the card.Also watch out for ESD.Saftey first,lol.
