    The noise stays even when the fan is outside the enclosure.

    Do you have an idea of how many hours are on the power supply?

    No idea, as the PSU was somewhat cleaned (more dust around the connectors and fan frame than on the board itself But I'm pretty sure it was powering a mining rig for quite some time. Couldn't think of another reason to buy a 1300W PSU.

    So maybe a new fan (with ball bearings) would indeed be quieter.

    Decided to order an identical fan, and hoping for the best. Now I need to wait for a month or two

    I think you made the right call; no worries about the right CFM, etc.
