It sounds like your pump has been run out of oil at some time and the vane ring has suffered some damage. And no brand of oil is going to make it run quiet.

Vane pumps will whine any time the vane ring gets damaged and no brand of oil will quiet it down. So expect to hear your whine again once it warms up.......................
