Default Alpha with papst

I've got this combination for a while now, but sometimes it starts to make noise . Yeah sure, a fan makes noise, but it's just like something touches the fan. that kinda noise .. When open my case , I can't see any cables near the fan...

What's wrong ,? Maybe i've thighten the screws of my alpha to hard ?? or to loose ???

BTW , an alpha heatsink should suck the air out off the heatsink , right ,??

that noise is that only when you boot your pc? I have the same problem with me Northbridge fan and when i send a mail about that to abit they said it was because the fan had to set out (uitzetten). When my pc is in windows it stopped

remove the fan, blow out the dust, maybe add a little oil & reattach it!
