    iMac makes soft noise
    Hi,
    My iMac makes very soft but audio able noise.

    Example:
    Noise..pause..noise..pause.

    I believe its coming from the back-sounds like a fan?

    But when I first ran it, it hardly had any noise..

    Help is appreciated.

    Specs:
    27" iMac i7 (2011) 10.11, Mac Mini i5 (2014), iPhone6s, Apple Watch, iPad Pro 9.7, AppleTV (4)
    Could be a fan or power supply but I'd suggest, being intermittent like that, it's probably the hard disk.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    May not help, but a very recent contributor to this forum finally discovered it was "vibration", cured by placing a towel or similar under the iMac stand. Just a thought.
