I hadn't heard that. And the link you posted doesn't say anything about it. 
Awfully nice of a virus to play a sound on startup but very difficult to 
believe. Do you have another link?

Anyway, the first thing I'd want to know to diagnose a sound is: Where is 
it coming from? Assuming you can still hear it with the internal and 
external speakers off, then I'd want to unplug the fans one by one. 
Assuming it wasn't a fan, then I'd stick a hose in my ear if necessary and 
try to figure out what part of the system is responsible. Other moving 
parts include the drives.

You said you replaced all the fans, but does that include the one inside 
the power supply and the ones on the CPU and video card? Again, your ear 
could pinpoint these, and a spray of lube should shut em up for a while.
