sounds like a fan either getting caught on something (loose wire dirt or something similar) or going bad. Possibly the hard drive, not likely but it wouldnt hurt to run a diagnostic if you cant pinpoint the exact area the sound is coming from. It may help if you unplug each fan inside the case individually for a short period of time (make sure to ground yourself out before touching anything) and seeing if the sound goes away-and if it doesnt, unplug all the fans (again for a short period of time) that will leave only two moving parts inside your computer-the PSU fan (you cant unplug that) and the hard drive, and it should be much easier to figure out which one it is at that point.
