    Thermaltake Volcano II vibration!! Normal???

    I just replaced my LOUD generic CPU fan with a Thermaltake Volcano II because I reaad great things about them here. Now... My question is this: My old fan was LOUD but smooth, not my new Thermaltake Volcano II is much quieter but I notice a slight vibration. I didn't notice until I sat back & put my feet up on the desk and felt it! It doesn't shake the paint loose or anything, but I can feel it everywhere on my dek, even through my steering wheel! Is this normal for these?

    **** Most Important, am I going to harm my CPU or boards with this vibration?

    Please give me some advise if you have any experience with this!!
