Hi guys, i bought my new ASUS G20AJ desktop at bestbuy 3 weeks ago. After 1 week, it started to make like heated metal cracking sounds. Is there any problem with my desktop ?
Thanks.

i noticed this at times also it sound like its the case side plastic parts making the crackling noises could be expanding / contracting from heat as you your self mention you will also notice tvs and similar devices do this

with the use of a combination of metal and plastic material These materials are subject to expansion and contraction due to temperature changes. With expansion or contraction you may occasionally hear popping or cracking sound. These noises are completely harmless :)

yeah, thank you very much, my friend, but is it because my fan system doesn't work well or something happens in the system ?

no needs to worry :) its just the cabinet absorbing some of the heat from the system
the cabinet is pretty compact so it will naturally absorb some of the heat causing it to make the sounds
your fans etc should be fine
