    Most likely a fan going bad. Open up the computer and figure out which fan it is, then replace.

    could be a fan going bad, or, there is a wire thats gettin hit in the fan.

    First I would make sure that all your wires are clearly away from your fans, if thats not the case, take your pannel off and listen to see which fan is going bad, and replace it.

    If it's the CPU or video card fan, then you'll need to get one for your specific application. If it's just a case fan, then any one with the same size, connector, and power consumption will do. If you're replacing the power supply fan, they're sometimes soldered directly to the circuit board inside the power supply. You'll need to resolder, or just splice the wires to install the new fan.
