If the transmission and clutch are working properly...its probably not either of those.

Lots of things under the hood can rattle but some things I would check are: Engine mounts, sway bar end links (I would recommend Massive's as a replacement), sway bar bushings (under the car on top of the subframe).

More detail about the noise may be able to help pin-point it better.
