woods cams

Installed woods 555 cams this year. Bike runs GREAT. Problem is I get a knock, sounds like it's in the front head, when it warms up. When I start it cold no Knock warm and it knocks. You can tell it goes with the cam but it is lower pitched than "normal" rocker noise. I have read every where that woods cams are noisy. Could this just be the infamous noisy woods cams? I also read that the heads, being aluminum, heat up faster than the steel parts and this can cause some increase in noise. Any thoughts, ideas?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Let's just ride!
