I reviewed your video. It is a bit difficult to distinguish the sound.
What I do hear is your cooling fans reving up to speed and your hard drive spinning up.
It would be better if you could remove the computer case side panel and listen around until you locate the exact area the noise you speak of is coming from.
There are tricks of the trade that help us locate the exact source of the noise.
Some use an every day kitchen utensil called a wooden spoon. The object there is to place the handle at your ear canal and the spoon ladle against various parts of the computer hardware. Usually the noise will be more pronounced once the spoon makes contact with the source of the noise.
You can press it on the frame of a fan, but be careful not to let it slip and cause damage to the fan blades.
Sometimes, hard drives will make a rattling noise when it is working perfectly well. Sometimes this is the case when in the BIOS setup utility, performance is chosen for the hard drive performance over slower but quitter setting.
Try the spoon trick, or try a straw, just be careful not to injure your ear drum in the process.

You may be hearing fans kicking in, in my last system I installed a video card with a fan it added a click during boot. My current rig has massive case fans they start with a whack I have SSD drives so no drive clicking.
