okay, more of this story. I've tested what I got and I still got crackles. performance monitor? nothing. activity monitor? nothing. opened the console and there were mysterious HID errors. weird, I thought, rebooted the machine -- and had no keyboard and mouse on next reboot.

I got it to service (they fixed the same thing more than a year ago by replacing some cable) and hope to get it back fixed soon.

I'll do some testing, however the only thing I feel weird about these crackles -- is that somewhat they were not present with Sierra. I keep both a Sierra and High Sierra backup, so I will be able to test that all again when I'll have the computer repaired.

(yeah, I didn't like Mojave. something with new font rendering looks wrong to me even on a Retina display. I've tried turning fonts smoothening on and off, but still just like High Sierra better. is this the end of Macs for me? IDK yet)
