Probable fan mis behaving
causes - dust buildup/coming loose from heatsink
or even [as with me this week] blade broken off- very frightening I can tell you.

Sounds like a fan ion they way out to me to. I'd pop the case open, and have a look inside, you may be able to work out where the noise is coming from. or one fan may be visably slow/erratic in its spinning.

Of as said, it may have just come lose, and be vibrating as it spins.

Could be the transformer in the PSU. As Dorsai, the only way to tell is to open 'er up.
