Default Clicking noise under the hood

So far the past couple days I have been hearing this clicking noise.

here is what I know

it happens when running above 1500 rpm
I'm pretty sure its coming from under the hood
I'm pretty sure it is the radiator fan, belt or a pulley.
The radiator fan seems to have a little wobble to it when the truck is running so I am leaning towards something being wrong with the fan.
Oh and I just replaced the air filter but it still made the noise before that.
one last thought... I suppose it could also be the fuel pump but I don't really know.

I would really appreciate some feedback on this so I don't end up taking it to a shop and paying for what could be a simple fix.
Thanks

A constant clicking noise or like once every 15-30 seconds?

its constant above 1500 rpm

also after reading around the forums some people seem to have described it as a chirping noise which I suppose would also fit the description and many people seem to blame the sychronizer shaft
