[256.25 8600GT] Unusual (fan?) Sound
Scrolling in a web browser (Chromium) or running an accelerated app (Heroes of Newerth), results in an unusual sound from my 8600GT - this sound was not present in the previous driver release.

Some kind of hiss? Is it really loud when running glxgears without vsync?

I wouldn't really call it a 'hiss', it sounds more like a 'sick fan' or a fan ticking.

glxgears (non-fullscreen) with vsync off does sound a little like a whine (quite quiet).

The sound is louder under a full screen opengl game (HoN), than the sound while (accelerated) scrolling in a web browser.

This is likely a bug in the updated driver. It could possibly be my cpu fan, but as stated, it's not present when backdating to the previous driver.

Running 256 drivers here with my cheapo 8400GS, I see no unusual fan noise, however the temps indicated have gone down by 2 deg Celsius, probably now its being reported accurately.

I am not sure if it helps, but have you tried altering some of the kernel module parameters ?

Probably in the latest edition there may be a new option that was not present in the older edition and you may need to "turn" it off as such ? just a idea.
