Clicking noise


New Member
I bought SP4 i5, 128GB this week. I noticed soon a problem with my new device. It makes some annoying noise under certain CPU load. It seems that is it caused by voltage regulators or some other HW structure. It is NOT caused by fan. It happens even when the fan is off. The device makes sound only when it oriented in portrait mode with USB and power connectors on the bottom.

I recorded the sound.

Does anyone have similar troubles with SP4?

My SP3 sometimes makes a fast clicking sound that sounds like that on your recording, but I get it coming from the speakers of my monitor when plugged in via DisplayPort.
Is your clicking sound mechanical, or does it come from the speakers?

It is unfortunately mechanical. I am afraid, that I will have to request replacement.
