One of mine's making a noise like an idling black cab - I've reseated 
the heat sink and messed around with it - only way to get it to stop for 
a while is to slap the box strategically. Driving me nuts, it's less 
than a year old but spose I have to get a new one :(

You can sometimes fiddle with smart fan settings in the BIOS if the 
CPU's running too hot. Didn't work for me cos it's obviously plain 
knackered but might work for you :)
