Fan Buzz/Noise

So, I recently installed a case fan to my H500i, this is the only one I've plugged into the back FAN HUB. It's been making a weird buzz noise, and I can't figure out why. Does anyone know why this might be happening, and how I can fix it?

Check the cables to make sure you cable isn't hitting the fan blade.

It could be some vibration between the case and the fan. Something like this might help.

If you think the sound is electrical you could try plugging the fan into a different fan connector. If the sound persists it could be the fan itself. You could try exchanging it.

Definitely not electrical, it is laying on the pump cable though, or well making contact with it. It could also be the case, as the case is metal.
