could be anything. Open the case and try and pinpoint as close as possible the noise. Could be fan going out, or fan blades rubbing on sometihng. Could be a drive going out, or a drive not mounted well. Usually, though, if its the fan the best rule is this. Turn the fan to be always on (if you can) and see if there is squeaking. Could be a bad bearing or whatever.

If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

that does not explain the 100% cpu is this during the game or when no programs are running because if it is the latter i say you may have spyware
