Thanks my friend, I'll keep everyone informed. I'm still working with my laptop in bits!... No point putting it together as I should have the new CPU Tuesday... : )

Would it be possible to do this mod on this chip and what would be the outcome?

That is the only thing I can think of right off.

Try muting your speakers and see if that makes the noise stop. Also try putting your ear right by the speaker to see if that is the source of the sound. I'm wondering if it is some weird harmonic that is couple onto the sound system. If you want to get more exotic with testing this theory you could disconnect the speaker.
Nest suggestion: I recall some people here having issues with noise that was found to be caused by the USB root hub and that disabling it made it go away. I'm a little fuzzy on the detail but perhaps a search will yield some results. I think the issue was with an i8600 but maybe your problem is somehow related.
EDIT: You should probably start a new thread (support section?) to get a little more traffic to your issue.
Hope this helps,
