    @ehume
    About a minute, sounds like it's starting at full RPM then gets progressively slower and stops.

    @none77
    Thought about it but there is a sheet metal separating Mainboard and PSU compartment, if i flip the PSU the fan literally gets covered by this very sheet.

    @ridgid13579
    For a on/off fan any day of the week, if it wasn't this noisy.
    Its not even the air flow/turbulence but like i can hear the bearing screeching.

    Not over Protechnic FDB.

    Or Enermax Twister.

    And not over rifle, personally.

Power Supplies are no where near 100% efficient so all of that wasted power (10-13% in the case of Gold units) is turned into heat. That's just normal behaviors.
    Tried to measure internal temp with a infrared thermometer (no laboratory equipment) will literally aiming blind through the back of the PSU, temp was between 29°C and 31.8°C with the system idling.

    Without a very steady hand, and a very good IR Temp sensor, you're probably reading the temp off of a fan blade, the wire fan grill, etc.

    I don't
    And the differences between 2BB Fans are so huge, that this sentence does not make any sense.
    There are 2BB fans wich are relatively quiet.

    And than there are 2BB Fans wich are annoying even with very low RPM...
    Older Intel Box Coolers are an example of those annoying 2BB fans...
    There are ones wich sounds like they are defective right out of the box...

    And do you really think the differences between sleeve bearing fans are any smaller than with 2BB fans? I don't.

    Oh and one thing is always missed with any kind of fluid based fans. The lubricant used!!

    Although you should know (with your cars) that the oil is really really important and that there are also huge differences between various oils.

    but but the interwebs say that Seasonic is an awesome manufacturer...

    Well, I think you really have your reason for, let's say, not liking them very much...
    And seasonic seems go get dropped left and right as a contract manufacturer...

    Is there anyone still working with them? Besides XFX of course...
