Macbook Black 13" – Fan fixed, CPU idle whine worse

Follow-up to Macbook Black 13" – broke before I could finish the review! (broken fan whine) from Gibo's Reviews

The new Mac arrives!

Return of the Mac

The replacement arrived in very good time, ordered on Friday and here on Monday. The new one does not suffer from the fan noise, but interestingly the CPU whine is louder.

Watch the video:

Fix for the CPU whine?

What’s really interesting is that the old one’s whine has almost disappeared over this weekend. And what have I been doing with it differently this weekend? Playing Half Life and briefly HL2 under Crossover beta.

Could it be that giving the system a good blast settles the whine? I shall try it out on the new one and report back…

    Hey!

    Did the whine return? I’m also suffering from the cpu whine. I’m thinking about playing HL2 to settle it down… If it helps at least.
