Sounds to me like a CD/ DVD drive rather than the hard drive.
Try disconnecting the power to the CD/DVD drive and see if that stops it (use good anti-static precautions when inside the case)

How about a fan? Check to see if there's any wires or other items close to the fans.
Beyond that, maybe the folks over in the Internal Hardware forums may have some suggestions: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/7/internal-hardware/

From what I can tell that Hantol power supply is of very low quality. That could be the cause of all your isues

Seasonic makes very good quality power supply's, get one of those. I don't know where your from but Newegg has the 520w Seasonic psu's for $45.

A failing hdd will make a clicking sound known as "the click of death". I realize that this is a new build, but hdds have failed straight out of the box. I would suggest running a scan with SeaTools for Windows to determine if there is a problem.
Please download and run SeaTools for Windows
Before the installation begins you will be prompted to either Decline or Accept the terms of the installation, click on I Accept.
Once the installation of SeatTools for Windows begins you will see an image similar to the one below.
1. SeaTools for Windows will search for HDDs and SSDs on your computer. Please remove any external storage devices connected via USB ports.
2. Detected Drives will list the HDDs and SSDs found. Place a check mark in the drive box you want to run the scan on. This should be the drive that has the operating system installed on it, this is usually C: drive.
3. You will see Basic Tests toolbar above Detected Drives, move the mouse pointer over this to open the test options. Please click on Long Generic Test
4. This will start the scan. When the scan is complete you will see the result under Test Status , please post the results in your topic.
5. The test will indicate either Pass or Fail. Post the results of the scan in your topic.
6. Click on Help, then click on View Log File. If the scan failed take a screen shot of the Log File and post it in your topic.
Regarding the PSU, a PSU doesn't make a clicking sound, I don't believe this noise is related to it. I feel that I should emphasis the fact that the PSU is the heart of your computer and should never be skimped on its purchase. As for Seasonic PSUs, manufacturers of PSUs will usually manufacturer their high end products, but will subcontract their lower line out to other manufacturers. You will find some useful information on the manufacturing of PSUs here. If you wish to know who has manufactured a PSU you are interested in google the model with " manufacturer of (make and model of PSU).
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

It sure sounds like a HDD click of death. I would also check your HDD temps during game play.
