No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.
One other question.
You say this happens while gaming. Does the game need to have the CD in the optical drive? If so then it is likely the source of what you are hearing spin-up and very possibly the source of the clicking.
Is it the source of the crashing? To soon to say. First do as Louis suggested and check for over heating.
You say that your hard drive is locking up...well, it may be the system that is locking up, not the hard drive.
Any number of components could be overheating...or malperforming.
Clicking noises...can emanate from the hard drive, can be an indication that the connections for same are loose.
Noises can also originate from fans which are failing or which have bearing problems. Fan problems can result in the system overheating and shutting down/freezing to protect itself.
I would be inclined to check for possible overheating first, before I conluded that any component was involved. I would also try to pinpoint the origin of these clicking noises you refer to.

Well...you can always test the hard drive and RAM components...to satisfy yourself that nothing is inherently wrong with either.
Others here can guide you on how to test the PSU.
If your question was...is there some easy way to try to solve this puzzle...I believe the answer must be no.
I would only take my system to a shop...if I were convinced that I have a hardware problem that is beyond my ability to troubleshoot/overcome. For me, that would be a motherboard problem or a possible CPU problem.
When all else fails...I delete everything and start with a clean install, makes it easier to for me if I remove the O/S and malware from the equation. That still leaves a number of prospective suspects .
