Loud whine when AC on and above 2500rpm...


Is anyone familiar with a loud whine from the AC? No abnormal sound with AC off or AC on at idle. However, with AC on and at 2500 rpm, a loud whine occurs. If I turn the AC off, the whine goes away. I am thinking it is the AC clutch or bearing. If anyone has seen (heard) this sound, I’d love to get your input.
