Computer that Makes a Clicking nois

Specs: Windows XP
I have a computer that I just but with an ITE 8702F-A chipset that makes a clicking noise with three different hard drives. I've taken one of the hard drives out to determine if it was the hard drive...and discovered it wasn't the hard drive that was the problem. This is a computer that I really need to work. What could be the problem? What can I do to fix it?

It's possible that it's underpowered. What make and wattage is your PSU?

Could it be a fan hitting on some wiring? Possibly in the PSU if not in the case itself.

115 is pretty low to power your computer

Are you sure you are reading the label right. 115V is probably the input voltage, depending on where you live.

Does 120 W make more sense. Another thing is I've tried connected another power supply with an output no more than 100 and it made the same clicking noise.

Do you have a floppy drive? If so, listen to see if it is making the noise.
