    just received my new MP and noticed the same thing with the 08 Modell which is that the door sits slightly offset on the case meaning theres a little gap about 0,5mm between the closed door and the outer case.

    Second my fans "boostA & boostB" are spinning at 1100rpm at idle I thought they should normally idle at around 800rpm? (I read at least)

    best regards, me :)

    My BOOSTA is always at 856 / 857.
    Never seen it spin faster or slower.

    I'd be more worried if the boost A and B were spinning slower, not faster. Mine is usually at 850 when idling, but it depends on the temperature in the room. The first fan to increase the RPMs is probably the boost fan since it has the most significant effect.

    I did an exchange today at the Apple store. My new 2009 Mac Pro Dual 2.26 doesn't have the oscillating noise anymore. So others might have some luck doing an exchange.
