HALP! My PC is suddenly making a crapton of noise.

I had my custom built computer built by someone else so I have no idea how to fix this issue. I tried setting the fan to SILENT using ASUS software but it doesn't do jack. I don't even know if it's the fan or not. Every minute or so it makes this loud, high-pitched VRRRRZZZZT sound. It's never done this before.

Something is touching the fan like a wire. Not talking about the blades; I'm talking about the bracket.

Open it up and look inside. Sometimes it's completely obvious.

Okay, I've definitely figured out the problem. It's the fan itself that's making the noise. The guy I had build my computer made sure to neatly place all the wires in the back with string tying them together so they wouldn't get tangled up. The problem lies with the fan making this dipping motion while it spins at max speed. It seems to dip at regular intervals which is in turn, hitting some plastic of the surrounding casing.

Now, here's where I need help. The guy broke the Molex male connector to the knob on the outside of the case that controls the fan speed, so he connected the controls directly to the motherboard IIRC. Thing is, the motherboard doesn't seem to be responding to me telling it to DISABLE the motherloving fan completely. It's still going at max speed. What exactly do I do now? My case is a 600T but I have no idea if getting that molex 4 pin molex cable will even fix the problem.

Go into the BIOS and fix the fan speed there.

Well, that's what I'm doing but the fan doesn't seem to want to slow down. It's still going at max speed. I tried disabling it outright, tried setting it silent mode and it's still going over 2300 RPMs. Do I need to update the bios or something?

That. Also are you sure the fan is conected straight to the motherboard via the 3pin connector? A fan only goes at it's max speed unless you set it up in the BIOS or it's just connected only to a 4pin molex.
