Thanks, but I don't think this whine fits into that issue you mentioned.
The 'transistor noise' only occurs during scrolling. The whine will start from bootup(after the 2-3sec initial high-speed fan blast), all the way into Windows.
It will only stop when a 3D application is run, causing the fan to switch to medium speed mode.
Nvidia should have just kept these damn card fans operating at medium speed in 2D - it's virtually noise-free at this speed!
