The squealing on mine is quite loud and it does it all the time when it's rendering. I've had a squealer in the past but it wasn't anywhere close to this one. I really can't live with it especially when I know that other people's 285's aren't squealing. I'm still returning it and hope to get one that doesn't squeal or one that's not nearly as annoying.
