Maybe try monitoring your system using software to see if there are any variations in normal operating temperature? If you're worried about your hard drives, you can run a health scan to see if there are any bad sectors, or if the unit is going to die outright. Have you been noticing any throttling or unexpected shutdowns?

Unplug all of your fans and see if the noise is still there. Apart from coils vibrating, Graphics cards are entirely solid-state, there should be no noise like what you're telling us.

 

What you're describing sounds like a dying hard drive or fan.
