Noisy printer and Stealth Mode louder than normal mode?

I have recently completed the build of my MK3s kit and have done a few different prints. I thinking my printer may be noiserier than it should be, however I have not been able to find a definative video clip example to compare it with. I have also noticed that the noise gets worse when I switch to stealth mode and this is making me think there is definatly something wrong, some of this is due to LCD rattling but even when you steady the LCD its still louder.  I have attached a video clip, would really appreciate some assistance to know what to investigte. 

Many Thanks

I have just completed a mk3s+ build, and found my model noisier in stealth mode. 
However, upon investigation I found that the screen wasn’t fully screwed down. Even though the screws were fairly tight. A flat washer and spring washer cured this.

The printer was then placed on an old exercise mat, ran up again in both normal and stealth mode.

It’s now noticeably quieter, in normal mode, more so in stealth mode. It must have been resonance on the screen pcb, and on the work surface.

Start printing some squash ball feet

You are experiencing resonance issues caused by the table you put your printer on.  Several ways to isolate the noise being amplified like that by a table top - my favorite is squash ball feet.
