Help! MSI GS72VR making strange noises


Dec 8, 2015
I just got this laptop two days ago, and have loved it so far. It's an MSI GS72VR with 16 gigs of ram, a GTX 1060, a 7700HQ, and a 17.3 inch 4k display. I love it. The only issue is some noises have started to come from the center of the grill near the screen. It sounds similar to drops of water hitting a very hot surface and evaporating instantly. It's totally random, and not affected by the speed of the fans, hard drive, battery or anything else I know how to change. It only stops when I turn it off.
