D4 chip cleaning

Well it's arrived and very shinny indeed. Anyway, just 3 days old and after only after a few lens changes the chip is grotty with dust. I swear it was in the mirror box already.

As I'm sure we all do, the "Self Clean" is set operate during turning on and off, but still the dust remained.

After prolonged use of a rocket blower most of it is off but not all.

The Pec-pads removed almost all of the remainder.

However, if you have a D4 could I ask you to put an ear to it as you carry out the chip clean. Apparently there is a high pitched whine.

I can detect no such noise so I wonder if mine works.
