Not quite a solution but I have noticed that if I twist the case when it starts that it will stop. Basically the case can move maybe a quarter mm and this seems to stop it for a while. I almost wonder if the thing is resonating with the case or something?
 
This does not fix it but it does stop it for a while.
 
When I twist it I also am pressing on the interior so that could also be part of this "fix"
 
Oh I took mine in during the first week and they replaced the power something. Didn't fix it. The problem was that their shop was too noisy to hear it.
 
=== Update (10/20/2014) ===
 
I discovered that this whine is mostly related to having an Ethernet cable plugged in. Then I noticed that the whine is the sound of data flowing through that port. Send a huge file and it is loud and continuous. Stop all connections(including others on that network) and it is just an intermittent buzz of the network chattering.
 
I took my machine into the apple store shortly after buying it. I don't think they actually heard the whine and I hadn't yet connected it to having an ethernet cable plugged in. They replaced the power board or some such. Didn't fix anything. Still whine all this time later.
