Left my computer running a game and when I came back after roughly one hour, it was frozen on the boot screen. Ever since, the motherboard speakers keep on making a clicking/ticking sound.
At some point it stops for a couple of seconds and then the computer restarts to repeat the same.
I'm sure it's not the hard drives because I removed them and it made the noise, but it stopped when I removed the speakers.
If I remove the ram, it beeps normally.
Specs are:
GTX 970, Z97MX - Gaming 5, i7 4790k, Power Supply CS650M, Ram 2x8GB HyperX Fury

Here's a recording of the sound:

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, I've got no means to test if it isn't the PSU or the motherboard, but it helps a lot to add that to the list of possibilities. It's a 5AM on a Sunday and Monday is a holiday. So I guess I'll find out in 3 days... I'll make sure to come report what I find out.

PS.: I'm still open to try any suggestions of tests.
