Noisy SRAM Cassette Just Switched Wheels

Just switched wheels from Bontrager Race to Race X Lite, but the rear wheel cassette makes a noise when the wheel is spun, as if the cassette is rubbing against the wheel in some way. Sort of like a "click click click click" sound and I was wondering if anyone knew what this means; I just had the LBS switch my SRAM cassette from my Race wheel to my Race X Lite Wheel, and when I came home to put the wheel on the rear of the bike, and gave it a spin, the noise started.

Any help is greatly appreciated and If I did not describe the noise well enough for a diagnosis please ask for any more info that I can provide.

Thanks

The cassette is a separate part from the freehub body. I bet the freehub body has a different tone then the old one due to a different configuration of the pawls, or the different freehub bodies are made from different materials or alloys.

yeah I thought about that but it is really noisy, almost to the point that it is kind of ridiculous for such a high end wheel and cassette combo. Going to the local bike shop today to have them check it out.

I find most high end freehub bodies are noisier.
