    I have a brand new, 13-inch, 2.9 GHz i7, 8 GB RAM, 750 GB Hard Drive MacBook Pro, and I have noticed a crackling noise coming from the upper left side of the machine, I think by the charger port. It is only one crackle, and it is relatively loud. It only happens after gaming. It has happened after Minecraft, Skyrim, Gmod, all of my games. I keep my MacBook plugged in when I game, and seeing how the sound is coming from near the charger, I thought maybe that had something to do with it.

    Does anyone know what's going on with it?

    can you post a video so that we can help you further?
    What kind of noise do you feel it is a metallic crackle? or the type of crackle you get with electrical sparks?

    It is more of an electric crackle. I think it is something to do with my charger, as I don't hear it when I play not plugged in.
