I have a DELL XPS 800 Studio. Specs are attached.

I for no apparent reason, my CPU began to make a fairly loud chattering noise, obviously based upon some sort of rotation. I opened the case and stopped the fan but the noise persists. There appears to be a cooling unit of sorts under the fan.

I also just replaced the video card, but the sound appears to be coming from the processor (And its not the fan)

Any ideas?
