Weird computer behavior.. No clue as to why

Hello there! So for awhile now, my, considerably new, computer has been yielding odd behavior lately.
So let's start at the beginning.
 
The computer frequently makes odd sounds that it didn't originally make. most of these sounds occur on booting it up, and then they typically go away after a time. One sound that occurs is almost a crackling noise. Not super loud, but it's strange and concerns me..
 
Another new sound that might be nothing, that upon booting up the computer, it makes almost a deep grumbling sound just for a couple of seconds. To imitate this noise, imagine clearing your throat very deeply. 
 
Also, I gotta state that when I purchased this computer, it originally came with a GTX 750 graphics card. But I decided to upgrade it, so I got a GTX 950 instead. I wonder as to if the power usage is causing these issues. 
 
Now for the real technical stuff that I'm concerned about.
 
Sometimes, as I'm on my computer doing one thing or another it just seems to run slower than it should. I don't know..    Gaming still renders perfectly fine though.

 
As of right now, the fan at the back of the case is not running AT ALL. And often it runs very very slow, and I feel it used to run faster right when I got the new PC as-is.    The only fan running in the system is the fan for the Intel i5 processor.
 
I also checked the fans inserted on the GTX 950, and they're not running either.. Of course, I haven't checked it until I found out just now that the fan at the back of the case wasn't running at all, so I can't make the assumption that the graphics card fans never ran before.
 
I'm alright with a hot computer. It doesn't concern me much, seeing as it hasn't made a death cry beeping noise or something like that, and there's no crazy lag--ever--that has occurred as I'm doing things on it, so that makes me more comfortable. The fact that three out of four fans in the PC aren't running though, that sure is a threat I'm trying to take care of!

I'll post a reply with information from Speccy to assist further.

Thanks for reading!

Check your HDD if that's making the crackling sound.

If your HDD is really making the noise, then I recommend you to backup your important files as quickly as possible.

Thanks for the info adi. I'll look into it.

 

 

But, might some one have information regarding the fans? I noticed it was started running again earlier, but right now no air is coming out anymore..

All your temperatures listed in your first post are entirely normal and nothing to worry about and on some systems fans don't run until temperatures reach some specified level. You certainly don't have a hot running computer.

 

You don't say what games you play but a simple way to see what happens as your GPU warms up is to try playing a reasonably complex game with all the video settings turned to maximum and see what happens. And in the event of overheating, computers don't usually make a 'death cry beeping'. From experience you get a muted 'click' and it justs shuts down completely and very quickly as the PSU turns itself off.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

@ComputerGuy1500  Were you able to find the cause?
