Default Fractal Fan woes

So I ordered 120mm and 140mm Fractal fans from NCIX to try them out.

When I plugged them into my fan controller they made a really loud and scratchy buzz. I figured it was my fan controller, so then I tried them one at a time on my motherboard, same thing. Tried directly to my PSU, same buzz. Used a AC-DC converter and gave it exactly 12V, same thing.

The buzzing stops when the fan isn't moving, so it's not an electrical problem.
Should I try some lube? Or does anybody know something about this?
