5. I also have a slight noise during screen scroll in IE. I haven't bothered to check where the noise is coming from, though, but I actually thought it was kinda cool although this looks like another power supply issue.

#4...this is exactly what I reported privately to nVidia and I think it does have some relation to the problem at hand. Nice pick-up on your part.

#5...I don't see the flicker at all in 2D but I do notice it slightly in 3D when the mouse wheel is engaged (Logitech MX-700).

Excellent analysis...I hope it helps fix the issue!
