Cleaned comp but strange noises!

I just cleaned my dusty comp out and it's now making strange noises. One is high pitched and loud. The other is a clicking sound (much lower in volume than the high pitched noises).

Thinking I'd sorted it (it went quiet) I put the case back on but it's making the noises again.

It makes the noises with the case top off too.

It's not the end of the world, it's a second comp used for minor stuff but it would be nice to be able to sort it out.

Clicking noise could be hard drive

High pitched is usually fans

I've fixed it. Although all the cables seemed tight and secure I reconnected the ones for the hard drive. Comp works a treat now.

Just goes to show a cable can just be slightly not just right yet apparently OK.
