Question for you guys. What would cause a clicking noise coming from either the psu or gpu? The fans aren't obviously hitting anything. It only seems to occur after I boot up a demanding game. I assumed coil whine, but I've always associated it with high pitched humming, where this sounds like a playing card in a bike wheel.

Do you have one of those old fashioned mechanical hard disk drive with spinning platters?

Seagate barracuda 1TB 7200 rpm. But it's clear on the other side of the tower. pretty sure its not that. Gonna take gtx770 out tonight and isolate whether it's gpu or psu.

Do you have a Corsair psu? My Corsair psu fan makes a ticking noise which is only audible if I stick my ear next to it.

It is a corsair 750m psu. It's a little louder than I'd normally be okay with, but if that's what it is and it's not a sign of failure, I'll live with it

Use MSI Afterburner to turn up your GPU fan speed. Mine would tick sometimes, would just turn fan up to 60%+ it would go away. Then just set it back to auto and it would be fine.

Turn off computer, flick switch on back of psu and remove power cord, wait a few min and plug back in and start up see if it happens.
