Check that the hard drive is properly secured in the case. If it is slightly loose, vibration may be causing the noise.

it could be the hard drive heads moving over the platters, that could sound like crackling on some drives.

May be the case speaker may be the hard drive,take the side off and have a listen.But only if it dont invalidate the warrenty doing so.
