Can you give us the complete make & model of the system please.
Most likely the noise you hear is a fan. My guess would be the power supply fan.
It may just need to be cleaned.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

The question is how cold are we talking about.
My house gets down in the fifties F in the winter if I forget to bank the wood stove which results in the fan on the PCU running much faster than normal until it warms to a normal operating temperature. I'm guessing that the resistance of the thermistor or diode (the thermal sensor at the base of the CPU) which will indicate an increase in temperature will also reflect an opposite reaction with a severe lower temperature causing the fan speed to increase.
