and then the PC locks up, any ideas, it is for sure coming from inside the case, but since its random, its hard to track the noise down to a certain area.

A clicking noise could be associated with a failing hard disk. Visit the manufacturers website and download (if you can) the disk testing tool. These normally create a bootable floppy which then runs the test.

Do you have an internal modem? may be this that is the culprit not the hdd.
