Well I bought my pc in june. Its a cicero, amd 64bit 2ghz, 1gig rdram, 80 gig harddrive, sound blaster audigy ls, nvidia geforce 5700 le 256mb. Any ways from the day I bought it, it makes random clicking sounds. Now if it was a failing harddrive it would have failed 5 months ago. Any ideas? It's starting to really annoy me.

Clicking sounds coming from the case? Maybe a busted fan.. Have you tried opening the case and listening for it?

I have an aftermarket cooler that--while being less noisy overall than the stock cooler--has bad bearings and randomly starts making this obnoxious clicking sound now and again.

Any more info than just "clicks?" Are they rapid, slow, metallic, soft? And have you tried doing bare boots with as little hardware as possible connected to see if it goes away?
