I am experiencing a dull clicking noise coming from the back left corner of my macbook pro. It comes and it goes, but mainly it is there under times of stress and when my MPB is warm. My MBP is also running much more hot than it used to. around 85 when it used to be at 45...

I am wondering if this is a possible heat sink issue. I had this happen with my old PB G4 and it was replaced NP under applecare.

Has anyone else experienced this clicking noise?
