    Sounds like a FET getting ready to fail.

    Sounds like it could be coming from the fans at the back, also the back seems warm yet i have hardly used it...

    Best thing to do is to open it up and see if you can find exactly were the sound is coming from. Because it could be just a dirt fan or something like that, then again it could be like maelstrom says, and that is a bit harder to fix

    I would say it's coming from the fans at the back...

    Not coming from the DVD drive that's for sure.

    Whats a fast way to clean it now that i've opened it up?

    Whoa! i just touched my power brick then it started making a loud freaking noise i've never heard before lol... the power brick itself so i turned the console off...

    I actually had that problem with my last 360 the power cable couldnt fit into the power brick properly...

    This one fits better but my feeling is that xbox suck at making power bricks and the cables that attach from the power outlet to the power brick they never seem to fit properly (securely) into the power brick itself crappy design if you ask me...

    I don't think it has been made cut to fit since i've purchased the whole thing retail not separately or anything.

    LOL it's actually the power brick which is making a buzzing/vibrating noise now...
