Wow, that was descriptive..

What kind of noise is it making? Clicking, vibration, what?

Probally a dusty fan or something. Clean all the fans off with compressed air.

Fans get noisy over time. Hard drives get noisy over time. Might be dust though, so try that first as CrazeD said.

I don't get what you're saying. Is it a low vibration, as the whole case vibrates? Or is it a very high pitched vibration. You may need to tighten all the screws inside and outside your case.

it could be a busted bearing on one of your fans, it would make an obnoxiously loud whinning sound... also probably make your case mechanically vibrate.
