I understand that when your computer is experiencing a "heavy" load (Windows Update, anti-virus update), you hear the sounds, and that when your computer is "idle", you do not hear the sounds. Correct?
It does seem to indicate that the CPU, when working "hard", is generating enough heat to trigger the motherboard to make the noise.
That SPECCY program will show the temperatures inside your computer.
How old is the computer? Do you have any pets that shed hair that makes its way inside your computer?
Have you ever opened-up the computer case (when turned-off and disconnected from AC power), and looked for "dust-balls", and/or tried to "spin" any of the visible fans -- fans should easily spin to a light touch, while "non-spinnable" fans need to be replaced.
