maybe just spray a bit of WD40 or something in it
It's the air blowing into the fins causing the whining. I guess a good thing to compare it to is fairly heavy wind blowing at a door and making a whistling sound as a result of the gap between door and door frame. Like I said, it's purely physics creating the sound.

Dude, if you have $80.00 to spare... Hook your self up with the Zalman 9500LED HS&FAN. I just got mine today from newegg.com and this thing is freakin' cool... I haven't installed it yet, but i'm dying too..

after doing some research on that product, it says as one of the feature, "Extremely quiet." It also has a 6 year warranty. Contact AC and tell them you want a new one.... put the phone next to the fan and let them listen to their humming HS$FAN
I may look into that Zalman, gonna be selling my old PSU so I will have some money to spare hopefully soon. I've thought about getting another Freezer 64 but I'd probably sooner get something else altogether.

I'm gonna try putting some tape around the 2 black arms to create enough tension to stop the whining.
