Default ticking noise

hi

ive just built a new system which seems to run fine apart from a ticking noise. Im finding this noise alarming as it is quite loud, it seems to be coming from the CPU or a nearby motherboard component. Any suggestions would be much apprecaited.

asus A7N8X-E deluxe
amd 3200
corsair cmx256
coolermaster aero7+
zalman 400w
samsung sata 80gb
radeon 9600xt

Nice setup! - You sure its near the cpu and that? seems not right at all! Maybe its your hard drive? My grandmothers computer i rigged up, her hard drive screams like hell on some days.

its definately coming from somewhere near the cpu, ive put my head right in the case and had a good listen. Its a loud noise so i turn the system off straight away, a couple of times its frozen during shut down. I can only think of trying to change components around with my old system to try and determine whos responsible for the noise.
