Just keep in mind that the mic preamp is still coming before the compressor. So any noise issues will actually be worse with a compressor (in the quiet parts).

If I had to guess I would say that the OP is being fooled by hearing the hiss get louder when he (or she) brings up the gain. Forgetting that the signal is getting louder as well. Although it would be fun to perform tests for this.
