There is visible noise at base ISO in the D300, which I found shocking so I got rid of it.

No more than the D200 at the same EV. What is overlooked by many is that when you expose using ISO 200 on the D300 you have about 2/3 of a stop of headroom, so if you utilize that headroom then you are effectively shooting at ISO 125 instead of ISO 200, and much of the base ISO noise that many complain about becomes a non-issue.
