insane buzzing

  1. My machine's started to buzz in a very annoying way in the last few days. Tonight, I pulled all the components out and systematically cleaned them all. There was literally not a spec of dust inside the case when I powered up tonight. For 30 minutes or so there was silence - now it's buzzing crazier than ever

    spec:XP home, 3.4, 200gig, 1gig ram.

    Ive tried listening to the case, but I cant narrow the noise down to a specific area. Both my fans are operating as normal and the temp is sitting at a constant 60-63 deg.

    This problem is causing me anguish because the PC is used mainly for video editing and I feel I'm close to a breakdown - it's like Chinese water torture...

    A quick update: When I click start/turn off, the noise goes away immediately. I sit and watch the 'windows is shutting down' screen for a few minutes in silence. I'm thinking it's a ram thing...would that make sense?
