    I built a new computer about a month ago and I originally had four cougar vortex fans attached to an H100 CPU cooler. I eventually removed the cougar vortex fans because they were making a loud rattling noise and were causing parts of my case to vibrate pretty bad. I replaced them with the fans that came with the H100 and everything went away, the rattling noise and the intense vibration.

    Luckily, everything is working fine but just to put my mind at ease, could the vibration from the fans I originally had maybe could have damaged any of the components such as as the CPU, RAM, or video card and it not be immediately noticeable? I heard that intense vibration can damage hard drives and MAYBE damage other components but how bad does it have to be? Here are my specs:

    Cooler Master HAF X
    Corsair H100 cooler
    OCZ Fatal1ty Brand 1000w PSU
    ASrock Z77 Extreme6 chip set
    Intel Core I7 3770k @3.50GHz (stock)
    16gb Gskill Ares DDR3 1866 RAM
    nVidia Geforce GTX 680 (stock)
    OCZ Vertex3 120GB (boot drive)
    WD Caviar Black 1TB (main storage)
    LG Blu-ray Drive

    Have you ever heard the expression, don't borrow trouble?

    I doubt the vibration from the fans caused any long term damage.

    I had never heard that saying before so I looked it up, lol! That saying is totally right, though. I shouldn't worry about anything with my computer until something explodes.
