Noisey Gearbox?

My 04 WRX transmission or gears make a whine through gears 3 -5, which gets progessivley worse the faster you go- or higher the gear. It only makes the sound when your foot is on the accelerator, as soon as you take it off it stops.
The gearbox oil has just been changed, and I've read other threads saying that changing the rear diff oil might be the go. I'm about to take the car away, and don't want anything to fall off/blow up while i'm 1000 miles away from anywhere. Any thoughts anyone?
Much obliged

Re: Noisey Gearbox?

Is the gearbox oil topped up to the Full level and is it the proper grade oil for the box? is the rear diff topped up to the filler hole and is it the proper grade oil? If all what I said is all good and right drive the car in 3-5th gears then take the gear out to neutral if the noise is gone its in the drive for example the box or rear diff and if noise the whining noise still their with gear out to neutral its wheel bearing hope it helps
