Hi,

I built my computer a little over a month ago, but the past week, it's making this really loud clicking noise. I've been having to turn off my computer and on again to get the noise to stop. But it seems every time I first turn it on the last couple of the days, the noise occurs. This video below shows the noise, please ignore the static on the image, maybe I had shaky hands when recording, thank you!

Apart from that video, we're going to need to know the specs to your build. Please list them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

You might want to also take a sheet of A4 paper, roll it into a cylinder and use it held with one end to your ear and the other end to probe for the source of the noise. Also, try disconnecting the case fans one at a time until the noise disappears.
