I've made a post about this a few days ago "It's the NTC bypass relay. The NTC thermistor is there to protect the PSU from the initial inrush currents during startup. Afterward, a relay may be used to switch on and bypass the thermistor which allows it to cool down and improved efficiency (mostly this). This click is just the relay engaging and disengaging." Your FD Ion+ Platinum does have this relay.

Relay.   Most PSUs have this.
