Did this problem occur immediately after upgrading to Win 10? Is the sound a loud whirring sound or a rattling sound?
Was your PC quiet when running Win 8.1?
What happens when you reboot your PC?
Do you occasionally use compressed air or a portable battery powered vacuum cleaner to clean the exhaust vents?
Look, you could have dust buildup which is impeding fan operation, or a failing fan (CPU or chassis) or a faulty Win 10 driver could be causing the CPU to consume excessive cycles. This causes the CPU temp to rise which causes the CPU fan to kick into high gear.
Check Task Manager for high CPU-Memory usage.
Download and install Speccy, free version. Check system temps.
