Check for loose screws around the power supply and any fans. It could be you HDD making noise. Do you notice the noise at a certain time or all the time?

Hi sneakycyber

It only started a couple of hour's ago and it has been constant since,hoping it's nothing major .
When i move the tower it stop's but start's again when i let go of it.
Will open it up see if anything is loose :thumbsup:

Well don't i feel rather stupid :thumbsup:

Found the problem .
I had lifted my printer yesterday to look for something and put it back too close to panel which divides my tower and printer ,and it was the printer touching the panel that was making the noise,ooops.

Sorry for wasting anyone's time.
