Apologies for never replying I forgot I posted this. The sound just gradually went away on its own, not sure if it rubbed away what was hitting or realigned itself, but it no longer makes any noise at any fan speed.

My kit is doing this as well, and it's extremely loud.  I've tried to push on the fan as suggested in post #5 and it does nothing.  I've completely reinstalled the shroud and back plate twice now, including very carefully checking alignment and fitment and no good.  I'm trying to copy a video of it, which is taken with the card sitting up.  It scrapes when just spinning the fan with my finger, and if you look on the underside of the shroud you can see a mark where it's scraping.
 
Edit: the forum won't let me post the youtube video....guess I need to make 7 more posts before it will allow me to do so.

I just took the whole thing apart again to check everything.  I can't find any fault in the installation, and this was my third attempt.  In the attached photo you can see where the fan is scraping at the shroud, and as mentioned, my fan noise was pretty extreme to the point that I don't feel comfortable leaving it go to see if it goes away.
 
Not sure what to do here.  I just got it, so I imagine I could return to NewEgg.  If I RAM I suspect that the replacement would do the same thing unless they've made some sort of change and mine was an older version.

No, I didn't have plastic washers handy and I ran out of time to mess with it today.

Not sure if it matters, but I don't have a loose fan or screws that aren't completely seated. Everything is nice and snug. If I put the shroud on without screwing it on it seems mostly fine. It even seemed fine at one point until I screwed the backplate back on. I tried to loosen things up too, but couldn't find a good combination.

I'm not really sure the washers would help in my situation.

Turns out my fan was actually a little loose. I just applied washers per The Scarlet One's suggestion and no more rubbing. Of course my shroud looks like it was already ground down a bit, but it looks like the washers provide a fair amount of clearance that it should clear a new shroud.

What I do not like is that knowing they are there I can see them under the back plate, and they do bow the backplate ever so slightly. I thought about trying to mount them under the card, but my concern would be bowing the card rather than the back plate.

Not very pleased with the solution for a $160 item, but it seems to work.

O.O man as exspesive as this cooler is you'd think this wouldn't be an issue. Was considering getting one of these but at 160$ if I have to mess around and hope it works....no thanks to that. If only ekwb had released there aio but they have had a lot of delays
