    I've noticed the fan is louder when I first turn it on. Maybe it briefly goes max speed as a self-test which provides enough voltage to power the fan?
    Really strange, I'll mess around more once my new PSU arrives later this week.

    Did you look to see if the the Yate Loon D12SM-12 can be oiled?

    I believe they can be but I'm not 100% sure. Someone on overclock.net mentioned that they oiled theirs every year to stop noise & I've read about oiling the D12SH-12. I'm pretty sure the main difference between the D12SH and the D12SM is the RPM so I'll give it a try.

    Worst case scenario, I buy a new fan - which I was going to do anyway.

    The new PSU should arrive by Friday so I'll test it out then

    I tend to use fully synthetic engine oil, but perhaps I should try automatic transmission fluid as the detergents in engine oil keep particles in suspension.

    Once properly oiled I doubt it will ever need to be done again; unless foolishly using WD40 which some people seem to do.

    While I wait for the new PSU, here's some photos of a strange assembly issue on my CX600M. I don't know how or when it happened...as seen in the first photo the warranty sticker is still intact so it hadn't been opened.

    Internally there doesn't seem to be anything amiss. I didn't see any obviously swollen capacitors or damage.

    Unfortunately the internal photos turned out a blurry mess so I probably won't be able to show that until the new PSU arrives.

    (I really should have included these in the original post, but oh well)

    Yeah. I've seen that before. Unit gets dropped and steel twists which causes the top half to pop out of the bottom.
