weak timing chain tensioner? worn timing gears and chain? try using a thicker oil, like 20 50 and see if it goes away or lessens the noise. if it does, it`s more than likely the tensioner.

it wont be the gears or shouldn't be. there brand new , and you say i should check the tensioner.

I have a rattle noise to but mine only happens under load around 1000rpm to 2000rpm on acceleration and decceleration in any gear not sure if it's VTC cam gear
