Clicking noise in a 27" iMac 2012

I have a clicking noise coming from my 27" iMac 2012 A1419 system

  • I replaced Power Supply board
  • Unplugged Cooler Fan

But noise is still same.

When i start CPU stress test, CPU temperatures go around 90~105 degree, i can hear this noise.

It sounds from Logic Board, i guess.

For testing, i unplugged the fan, but noise is same.

I think this noise is not related with Power Supply or Fan or HDD.

I recorded this noise.

After this noise starting , CPU temperature is down to 80 degree.

Is that a throttling noise?

@areeve

In my imac, there is no HDD.

There is only SSD.

Finally, i solve this problem.

The problem was heatsink. i replaced the heatsink, and annoying noise and high temperature were disappeared.

I installed the old heatsink in another imac, and there were crackling noise and high temperature.

Thanks.

The sound appears to be more of a slapping sound than a discharge sound. Clearly someone is flapping around. I would look for a scrap of paper or loose tape within the fan. While you stated you disconnected the fan I'm not convinced you had, as I still hear it!

Well you had me stumped! 95~105 ℉ is within the normal range. I wouldn't have expected the coolant boiling would have made such a strange sound. Clearly you have a leak in the heat transfer pipe did you see any holes?

I would check the hard drive. A lot of times they start the “click of death” before they fail. iMac Intel 27" EMC 2546 Vervanging van de harde schijf

Clicking sounds as you describe is more likely the fan bearing and/or blade hitting the fan's cowling if nothing else is wrong.iMac Intel 27" (Late 2012-Late 2015) Fan ands here's the guide iMac Intel 27" EMC 2546 Fan Replacement
