I had the same issue. Intermittent vibrations what would stop with just barely a touch to the outer case.

Mine started right out of the box. (after I plugged it in...)

I think I solved it by putting about 6 inches long of half inch wide foam, about 1/4 inch think.

I put it between the outer case and the inner metal case that it was vibrating against.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one with this problem.

all you needed to do is push parts there with a finger to find the buzz cause, and location

asking the deaf here, is super hard, no harder problems exist than sounds, 

motor and fan noise,

the front bezel (plastic)  can crack or the tabs are not seated, I bet is your issue, why not push there first

you already pushed the side, panel. and no change.

location location location (repeat that 3 times) only that matters first. 

even  2 thing wrong, ,say

1 fan packed in lint and off balance and cause  panel to rattle.

or bad bearings same. in fact. or hdd super bad motor. 

learn to push things

learn to twist the case, by hand. learn to see of noise stops side off.

or if hdd removed it ends. check fans for excessive vibration.

any shop in town can find its, ask them> they do this all the time, (noise) it is a 100% hands on event..

texting how noise sounds , is not going to work , only ears live work and hands on actions work.

here.(there),  learn to move things and put pressure in all places on the case and win.

learn this too.

learn that if any motor in any fan or the fan are grossly out of balance,l

all PCs will make noise,

ever pluck a guitar string see the one next to it wiggle in sympathetic vibrations?

no PC on earth can hide the actions of a bad fan or motor

some PCs have 5 fans, and 1 HDD motor.

CPU, GPU, PSU,front and rear fans and HDD.

if a motor ;fan fails,  it can make direct noise and also sympathetic vibrations?

they can even telegraph , means move from one end to other and some other thing flimsy makes a racket, like the front bezel. even the silly DVD tray or its bezel, or even 1 lose screw anywhere there or clip .clamp.

ever see  license plate on car (loose ) make noise, ? sure. and so can a PC.

 

x2 this.

Personally, I think if you can't use a screw-driver you have no business getting inside it. emoticon.Smile.title

In my instance, it was the rearmost HDD cage. Made sure that the cage was seated completely and tightened the screws. No more buzz. I should note that I had channeled cables through the void at the  the bottom of the cage side, and this kept the cage from seating as easily/cleanly as if the wires hadn't been in the way.

I have this exact same issue. I fully relate to Mark_Rob.

I've had my XPS 8930 pc for a little less than a year now. The constant buzzing noise has finally gotten to my nerves enough to register with the Dell community and say something about it on Christmas Day!
