Loud / Buzzing CPU Fan

Sounds like normal stock CPU cooler to me. Those things usually ramp up and down more than aftermarket coolers so it's also not unusual for the tone to change dramatically.

Hi everyone, finished my first ever PC build relatively recently but am noticing my CPU cooler seems to be making a noticeable buzzing noise.

 

My GPU fans only turn on at a certain usage, and my case fans are pretty much silent, so the cpu fan is all I can hear.

This is the noise as I held the mic up to the front of the PC ( ignore background noise, focus on the buzzing sound). Is this sound normal to come from the CPU fan?

 

My temps seem to be fine, considering it is the stock cooler for the R5 3600

 

I'm not worrying too much since the PC seems to be running fine, in gaming as well, but if it is an issue I would prefer to deal with it ASAP.

 

I am pretty sure that it is screwed in properly as well since I remember I spent a lot of time installing the cooler because it was giving me problems lol

 

I'm happy to answer any more questions and any help is appreciated.

Thanks mate, that's good to hear. Just wasn't sure if it was normal, and wanted to make sure since this was my first build.
