/Hug to start with
Well when you did the upgrade the OSX ML uses your drive alot. As you said the popping sound from your research its comming form the drive. if that is the case. Check your disk with disk utitlities just incase too see if the drive is still ok. If its all Green your good if its red it might need replacement.
Note that Popping sound is usually a hardware problem or optical audio problem when using external speakers. instead of internal ones so becareful. My advice would be too be let it slide still the next patch if disk utilities says your drive is fine (Usually after 2 weeks of main realese). After that if its still there you have to get the puppy in for a checkup.
Hope i was able to comfort you in some way

Hi Macinize! (hugs)
well, my disk utilities stated all green, guess I will let it be for some time and see.
I am worrying my disk would be ruined if this continues.
Have a nice day!

When in doubt BACKUP
Worsed case your drive will be replaced and you put your data back..
so backup either with time machine or by hand or both for the time being more then you ussaully do for the next 3 weeks till the patch pops. You can never have too many backups i say. Also check with disk utilitys from time to time.
Qeastion do you also get the POP when using headphones?

Yes it does,
Even when I mute the speakers.
Now I'm suspecting this to have something to do with ML.

Same i would wait it out.. and not worry too much.. make a backup just incase and your safe.
ML can absolutely be your problem with your specific model etc etc. lets see how this post goes maybe more people will reply with the same issue and we will know. ML is just out so it can be anything

I am also experiencing the same problem after upgrading to ML. Mine is a 15" Mid 2010 MacBook Pro.
Upgraded to ML one day ago. Everyonce in a awhile I will hear a pop from the speakers. Haven't found any way to force it to recreate, just seems random in my case. The pop doesn't preceed sound coming from the speakers, I just hear it randomly when I have interacted with the computer. Have not tried puttting my speaker on mute. During an hour period, I have probably heard the pop three times.

Hello, same problem with a 15" Mid 2010 MacBook Pro. Never popped before the ML upgrade.

I have the exact same issue with a 15" Late 2008 MBP. Never had this issue, then I did a clean install of ML and now it happens several times each day.

loud crackling after ML upgrade - I can re-create it often, when waking computer from sleep.
Macbook pro, 13", late 2011, only months old. Will await 10.8.1 and hope it's a bug fix (spoke too soon - just checked and it was released today)

I have been experiencing this odd, faint, random pop that comes from my speakers on occasion ever since I've installed Mountain Lion. My MBP 13" is a mid 2010 model. It is a sound that is definitely generated by the speakers. I have checked my 'sound' settings in System Preferences and listened to the actual "pop" sound on the list of various sounds available and it is different than that faint popping sound I've been hearing as of late.

Me, too! Me, too! It's a popping sound on my '10 MacBookPro 17"—like the sound of an old filament light bulb breaking—and it occurs at random intervals with no rhyme or reason. What gives? and on a scale of 1 to 10, how worried should we be?

My speakers also make a "popping" noise, but for me, it only seems to be when the computer is sleeping. I have not yet experienced it while using the computer. In my case, it only started a couple days ago.
I'm running OS X 10.8.2 with all updates on an 27" iMac (Mid 2011). I haven't installed any new programs in months and I have restarted the computer many times.
