Somebody in the thread at some point said:

| discharging as if it is on.
It sounds a lot like the A5 VB_SYS problem, the clicking noise is
actually coming from the ceramic capacitors that flex piezoelectrically
at the high currents during startup if that's the case.
Is it a fast tick-tick-tick type noise, like 10Hz, not apparently coming
from any particular place?
