My computer makes this quite loud ticking/clicking sound while I render a video. The sounds starts to appear after 1-2 minutes of rendering, then stops after the video has rendered.

I don't know why it's making that. It just suddenly happened a few days ago.

The sound ONLY occurs when I render a video. 

What's making that sound, and how do I fix it?

You mean the PC itself makes a ticking sound, or there is a ticking sound on the rendered video?

It's pretty high intensity CPU work, so assume it's a heating issue in some respect. Maybe fan related perhaps?, or is it coming through the speakers also? Are your fans and heatsinks clean from dust buildup?

Thanks guys for the replies.

It's my computer that's making the sound, not the video or the speakers.
My CPU has watercooling, but not the best, and the temperature went up to 65C while rendering. 
My computer is only 2-3 months old.

Is there anything I should be worried about?
