    ive checked all the fans but my cpu , psu and graphics card fan. It all seems fine and my computer is only like 4 months old and the sound comes once in a while during startup like after a week or so and it sounds like a low peach sound growling inside

    Sounds like a bad fan. I'd pull the side off of the case, then power it up and keep an eye out for a fan that is slow to start up.

    Thanks ill check if any fan is doing all these noise and also i have a fan with LED but 3 of the LED died off could it be that fan ? it came with the chassing

    if the LEDs died out , it doesn't mean that the fan is faulty, but still, it's not a bad idea to check that... ;)

    at the rate (RPM) the fans these days run, i don't think there will be any difference in eye perception if a fan is running slowly... the best way to check this out is to listen to the fans... see which one makes the noise... ;)

    and i wouldn't worry about the whole fan thing too much, i've had fans like that running for years now on my old rig... sometimes they just need to warm up... so it's not such a big problem... unless you are planning on putting the rig to an OC testing :D... then i would definitely look into the fan problem... ;)

    i found out that the outtake fan is kinda of slow compare to the other fan but its connected to the motherboard and if i unplug it away from the motherboard to another plug it runs faster
    and the rest is ok
