Hi folks, novice PC builder here.

I recently rebuilt my PC after I purchased a few upgrades. Now, whenever I turn it on, it makes a tiny click. I don't see any difference in performance nor have I seen it turn off by itself or do anything peculiar. When I turn it off or put it to sleep I hear the same thing.

I did some looking around in the Internet and found that some people think it's the PSU making the click. Can anyone verify this statement for me? Thanks.

Build:
Ryzen 5 3600X
MSI B550 Tomahawk Mag
ASUS ROG STRIX 3070
4x 8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX @ 3200 MHz
Be Quiet! Straight Power 11 Platinum 750W
Samsung Evo 860 250GB (I think)
Western Digital Blue 500GB HDD
Western Digital Blue 1TB HDD
Corsair 5000D Airflow

Sometimes hdd does it when going to "park" at shutdown and when booting up. May be hdd is starting to pack. Start your pc with both hdd's disconnected. If click is still there, its probably your psu. Test pc with other psu
