Hi there, I am a newbie to the forums and as such appologize if this is the wrong place to upload this.

 

I have recently built my first gaming computer which had been fine. She boots up okay and is fine when idle. Issues start occuring when under load during intensive games. The Cpu cooler starts making a strange crackling sort of noise. I have attached a video relating to this. I was hoping I could get some insight as to why this noise occurs please. Thank you.

I don't hear anything of immediate concern in that clip. I do mostly hear fan noise and then when the mic gets close enough, the standard hum from the pump. Everything appears to be pretty normal.

 

"Crackle" or small static-like popping sounds are usually the result of small bubbles going through the pump. This is most common right after installing, moving the case around, taking down the radiator for cleaning, or any other time you substantially alter the relative position of the radiator in relation to the pump. The typical fix is to tilt the case so the bubbles can escape the pump area. You want the hose outlet at the highest point so the bubbles will freely float out. For you, that means tilting the case backwards, rear exhaust side down. Next time you hear it, rock backwards and see if it goes away. You may also be able to expedite the process by alternating the pump speed from the Quiet (low) setting to Extreme and back and forth every 10 seconds to see if you can push them out of the pump area.
