Default Noctua C14 Vibration

Hi there,

Many of you are probably aware of the fact the C14 or rather the fan themselves used on this particular cooler vibrates when running +600RPMs. Though this is not really a concern for me as I can put up with it but will this harm the motherboard and other components? It's not a violent vibration, it's more a humming/ bassy type of vibration.

Thanks

If you don't mind the annoying resonance, there's no issue whatsoever.

Sooooooo....the cause of the vibration is also because of the fans are mounted on the white rubber pads?

Thanks
