I've recently moved my pc and now it makes a rattling noise, I know it's my exhaust fan because when I hold the case where the fan us attached to it stops, the fan is an arctic P12

Pressing the case near the fan doesn't necessarily mean the fan, it could mean something else is rattling, and pressing the case alters that. Perhaps because of vibrations from the fan, perhaps not.

But starting with the possibility it's the fan itself:

Check if there is anything close to the fan - cables for instance

With the PC off, check if the fan is loose at any of its corners. Tighten the screws if so, but be careful not to overtighten as some plastic may break if you do.

Disconnect the fan and see if the noise is any different.
