Lately, I've been experiencing a clicking sound coming out of my water cooler Corsair H100. Sometimes it's more and sometimes less. When I'm pushing the fans there is, of course, more clicking. Does someone know why this is happening and if there is an easy fix for that?

Could some of the fans come loose and making this sound?

Pull the fans and clean them and clean the radiator. The combination of these two things should remove any debris or dust or what ever that might be clicking. If there is a physical interference, hopefully removing the fans will alleviate that issue. As you are cleaning, look for any damage or something that may be causing the noise.

I'm at work for now so am not able to listen to your file. But take the steps above for general troubleshooting.

First thing first, I would unplug one fan, run the system (dont push it obviously since its only one fan), and see if it persists.
If it stops, its that fan, if it continues, try the other fan.
If it continues after checking both fans one at a time, then its probably the pump impeller.
