Default Irritating whine from FX 5800 in 2D mode

Hi all,

I bought a new PNY FX5800 non-ultra (see attached picture) 2 days ago.
The card runs great, but there's an irritating whine from it in 2D mode. It's not exactly loud, but very prominent and audible.
I fire up 3D applications, the fan revs up slightly, and the whine is gone! So it's more quiet in 3D than in 2D!

I have a relatively quiet PC, and this whine is driving me insane!! Is this 2D whine part of every FX5800, or do I have a faulty card?
