The vibration could be a hard drive or fan slightly loose in its mount, a fan going bad, or just flimsy case design that allows bezels or side panels to vibrate a bit.

The noise other than the vibration is likely a fan or power supply. You can temporarily stop any case fan with your fingers to see if the noise stops.

Fans spinning above 1000 rpm tend to be audible at close range, even the better ones.

Get the side panel off, get a flashlight, and put your ear in there and pay attention. Some fans are a lot quieter than others and even good fans will eventually fail and make a racket.

Quieting noisy parts is very difficult. The best move is to buy quiet components to begin with, so you don't have to worry much about making them quiet. Some cases have mesh front panels or are otherwise so compromised that it's very difficult to have a quiet system with them, regardless of the internal components.

You have received some very good information but I would like to leave a little tid bit. I would never over clock a computer with stock cooling.

Yes I thought it was the fans so I cleaned them a few weeks ago but it was still the same.
I don't know how I can find the faulty one as there are all spinning all the time

So what baring does that have on the original question. My Asus P7P55 only has SATA 3 ports as an add-on chip. My system runs really fast and I do have an SSD and it is overclocked.

Your point is?

An SSD will work fine on your system. == Open up your case and unplug all of the fans except one and see if it makes noise. Do this for all of them until you find the noisy one.

Stop one fan with your finger or disconnect it temporarily. Does the noise stop? If not, that fan is OK. Move on to the next fan and do the same thing.

Well I will ask a better way. When you are in your case can you see what power supply you have. Let us know what it is and and information on it. Reason being is it might be making the noise. You do not want to poke inside a power supply for any reason.
