Could be a fan too. When they wear out they can rotate themselves out of alignment, making noise. Case fans on a previous case I had for many years would all go back to normal for a bit if I hit my case.

One time I was plugging in my speakers (behind my desk so I couldn't really see where I was sticking things) and I accidentally put the 3.5mm plug into the back fan... it broke two blades off the fan, a piece came out and put a small gash in my thumb and knocked the entire thing out of balance and there where plastic shards all over the inside of the PC... I used it for an excuse to buy a new case....

It was pretty funny afterwards but kind of scary when it happened...
