Does anyone else have a clicking noise in their MBP when the GPU is in heavy use. I figure its the GPU fan or something because its coming from the right upper corner of the laptop. Any responses are appreciated =)

Is it still under warranty? It looks like nobody here knows what you're talking about unfortunately. I've never had a macbook pro so I can't help you either except that if you still have applecare on your macbook pro, bring it in to an Apple store and have them take a gander at it.

Yes my name is Jaguar.
No, it is not a joke.
I don't find your "I'm a cheetah." joke funny.

The GPU in a MBP doesn't have its own fan - all three chippies go right to the same heat sink that sits below your numlock. You should be hearing both fans running. If not, one pooed the bed or... one has something like a flap of kapton tape that is hitting the fan blades (think playing card in bike spokes on steroids) making it much louder.
