On the old Abus if the casting brake button/dail is too loose it will let the spool flop around and make noise when you cast. Best way to set it is have the lure of choice hanging from the end of the rod and tighen up the casting brake a little. Press the casting button and the lure should just hang there and no line goes out, then slowly back off the casting brake until gravity pulls the lure down. This should get you pretty close to the proper tension on the casting brake and it should reduce the noise/spool slop.

A noisy Abu? No way!

Just kidding. Adjust it like Jonny P said and it'll be fine. They all tend to make noise.
