    I imagine you are going to have to bring it in to an Apple Store.

    Download the widget "iStat" and let us know how many rpm the fan is spinning while not doing heavy stuff with your processor. I think this should benfit to help ...

    wait..so its running fine while it turned off? maybe you should leave it off :p

    There are solutions like resetting the PMU and SMU..If apple deems there is nothing wrong and the sound is normal you can look here for a possible solution
