“Last week I received a new revision of the logic board that actually got rid of all whine! According to my service provider that did the repair this revision was brand new, only a few days old,” Rickard Almqvist reports over on MacInTouch.
“With the new logic board Apple also sent new installation DVDs needed to make a new install with the new logic board. They contained 10.4.6 instead of 10.4.5 that the computer was delivered with,”Almqvist reports. “I took a picture of Apple’s letter. To summarize: The new logic board got rid of all whine!”
Transcript of relevant portion of Apple’s letter:
