I’ve tried everything, can’t understand why the big D and B string doesn’t do it also, replaced that fret, leveled and crowned it, still the same noise, using a 10 and a 12 gauge, it’s very noticeable when fretting them, any thoughts?
Thanks for looking

Occasionally, when you get a mysterious issue, it can help to go over your entire set up & re-examine each small point, even one's that may not seem like culprits.

I once found one fret, but it took a little while to do that.

I agree with Mr. Dennis.

Check to see if the frets before and after the 5th and 6th fret wire. You may have one that is slightly high.

Neck relief changes with the seasons.
As the bow of .015" flattens the frets need more clearance to fret cleanly.
Truss rod sets this.
