Hello everyone! Hope you doing well.
Wanted to share with you an issue I'm dealing with my CLC regarding noises from the bottom radiator fan.
Yesterday I managed to install my CLC in my PC, it was the first time I built my own and I watched as many tutorials I could to build it with not much struggle. When I turned it on for the first time everything was fine, but I had to open my PC again because I realized I didn't connect the Pump mini USB to the mobo and I also connected the "To Motherboard" Head into the CPU_FAN pins instead of the AIO Pump, so my system wasn't detecting the CLC. After I entered the BIOS to turn off the CPU_FAN monitoring and plugged the USB correctly, my PC launched with no problem but after some time I started to hear a "metallic" like sound coming from the radiator fans, I know this because I accidently stopped the bottom fan when I was tweaking with my tower and the noise suddenly stopped.
I'm super noob when it comes to PC and even more to cooling systems, I don't know if this is a normal thing but every video I've seen reviewing this cooler it didn't sound like this. I really hope you could give me a hand with my problem pls.
 
Oh, and also I'll list my PC specs if they are useful in any way:
- CPU: Intel i5 8400 2.81 Ghz
- GPU: RX750 8gvram
- RAM: 16gb 
- Motherboard: Asus Z370 Prime
- Tower: XPG Invader 
 
(PS: I don't know if there is any way to attach audio into the post, but if there is, please let me know so I can show you how it sounds).

    Hello and Welcome to the EVGA Forum!
    Maybe the fan blade might touch to radiator can be make noise so try take out the fans and have a look close at the close see anything fans blade light scratch on radiator? 
    Or if you are still under EVGA warranty for 5 years then you can RMA to replace new one! So contact EVGA Customer support

    Yeah, sounds like the fans screws are either a little loose and when it turns on it tweaks the fan enough to touch the fins under it or that fan isnt sitting with a even amount of clearance around the all the blades, which means youll have to back the screws out and reset it up so there is enough clearance all the way around. It may also even be a wire that too close and is touching the fan blades.
