Rattling sound in xbox slim.

My Xbox slim has a slit rattling sound. All of my other consoles had it to. My discs are not damaged and it runs the games excellent. I have to horizontal on a solid surface. Only some games make the console to that rattling sound. If I download the to my hard drive then there's no sound what so ever. I hear its very common in consoles. the sound is pretty quiet. I will only notice if it I have the sound on my TV all the way down. Now for my questions. Should I be worried? Will this cause any damage in the future? Basically is everything going to be ok?

The rattling should be coming from one of the vents on the side of the console.  If you feel around to where the rear right side of the console where the vent pops open for the hard drive you'll find that's where it's coming from.  I've just removed the vent entirely and voila... no more rattle.
