My pc is making a noise like something rattling, and it vibrates a little, but when i tilt the pc it stops, what could it be? HDD or PSU?

May be something in contact with a fan blade, could be resonance, could be a loose screw or other some other object just rattling about.

When you tilt the case contact is lost and the noise stops.

However, I just noted a post about a cooler that behaved in a similar manner.

Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

Power down, unplug, open the case.

Clean out dust and debris, look for loose items, re-seat all cards, connectors, RAM, and jumpers.
