that should max out the CPU, and i did not hear a thing

The sound actually shows up when the CPU is idle. In any case, I think the thing is that you can't hear it as easily through all the extra layers of plastic and whatnot in the iMac.

i do hope they fix the heat/whining/discoloration soon because i'd realllly like a macbook myself.

The discoloration is a legimate issue, but I really don't think the heat is something to be "fixed." There's a hot chip and a hot graphics card in a small enclosure. The only genuine fix is more efficent CPUs and GPUs, but additional efficiency will probably just be used to gain performance anyway.
