Hi everyone! I have built my computer a couple weeks ago.. but I really want my PSU fan to run all the time and not just sometimes when it hits a certain temp or load.. Is there a way to enable my fan to run all the time?

Not without breaking the seal on your PSU and violating the warranty. The controller is internal and may not even be user tamper-able.

I need to cool my GPU more, and more airflow in general. Sometimes I don't think it even kicks in when it has to..

The PSU's job is not to cool the GPU.

Use the proper tool for the job (i.e. add more case cooling fans).

What kind of temps are you getting with your graphics card? And what make/model is it?
Is your PSU top mounted or bottom mounted in the case?

I don't know the temps.. but I can feel alot of heat coming out of the vents of the GPU. I have a EVGA GTX 660. PSU mounted bottom with fan facing up.

Hot air coming out of the card's vents during stressful activity like gaming is normal. And expected. Use a program like HWMonitor to keep an eye on the gfx card temps. But I seriously doubt you have a heat issue with that case.
