Omg.... ahhh I don't know if I can take this high pitch screeching anymore... it sounds like a constant cricket. I stopped the fan, and its definitely coming from the cpu area... can a cpu seriously make noise like this?????

If it's coming from the "cpu area" I'm thinking it's probably from the voltage regulation circuitry which is normally found around the CPU socket.

You can try applying light pressure (with your finger) to the caps and blocks (mosfets??? :) ) surrounding the socket to see if one of them is causing the whine.

I checked the surrounding mosfets Sswilson, and nothing happened when I applied pressure to them. I also found cases on forums that are exactly like mine. Radeon 9800 pro making high pitched noise, not fan. - MegaGames Forum

Yet, the solution to my problem aren't there. And I've tried the only solution at the bottom of that link. I'm going to try and just refund my motherboard for 15% restocking fee, and buying another one.

First, that load CPU temp is way too high for a C2D, non-oc'ed with stock HSF. You still have a problem. Remove the HSF and the CPU, clean both contact surfaces and check with a rasor blade if either (or both) are bowed: you will know if this is the case when light can be seen between the surface and the rasor blade.

Second, the high-pitch whine noise coming from the CPU area are the Mosfets complaining. I had that noise too from an Evga 680i with fubar power regulators. It did exactly the same noise during idle, and would go away during load. I had to RMA the board, and replaced it with a Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R.

Default how did you get one?

I had not idea those chips could run so hot. Hopefully youll pull the plug on the system if it gos above 60oc till you get this issue sorted out. Can you set a temp alarm on the MB/cpu with the MB software? Anyway im sure if you apply the paste and follow a good heatsink install guide youll be fine. As for the buzzing sound..not heard that kind of noise since my brothers candian/uk transformer fried.
