Not hearing a weird noise per se. I do hear what sounds to be a fan spinning. Or maybe a pump. Higher frequency though.

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

PSU: make, model, wattage, age, condition?

Disk drives: make, model, capacity, how full?

Is the system showing any problems: errors, shutdowns, overheating, etc..

Try to pin point the location of the sound.

Has the case been opened for cleaning and maintenance?

I.e., remove dust and debris.

Check that all connectors, cards, RAM, and jumpers are full and firmly in place.

No loose brackets, wires dangling about, and so forth.

I also cannot hear the noise, at least not what I think you are speaking of. I have to wonder if perhaps it is heterodyne noise from two fans operating at almost the same exact speed. If it is, and if it is from a chassis fan, then perhaps you could disable one (and only one) fan on the chassis at a time and see if disabling one fan ever stops the strange noise.

Try to pin point the location of the sound. (sounds like its coming from the psu area.)

Very much need to find the source location.

Use a long (about 12") cardboard tube or rolled up sheet of paper to help.

Put one end of the tube to your ear and very carefully move the other end of the tube about to pinpoint the source of the noise.

As for "nudge" that could simply be something loose and vibrating. Nudging causes or stops the movement. Could just be a loose bracket, case screw, etc..

Same thought applies. Identify the source.
