    hey guys, my macbook retina makes a whistling noise when the fans are running high. I can hear it around the 3700 rpm mark and it gets louder as the fans turn faster.. Its not the jet engine "whoosh" noise that I know the macbook retinas make... so I'm not sure what it is.. I've also had the fans replaced but the sound is still there.. anyone know what else it could be ?

    There was another thread about this noise, he said it came from the part near to his MaSafe power plug, and it got more when it was on a heavy load, it could be from the Power (management) board near to it.
