My Corsair TX750 fan has started to lock up when it gets going. From what I can tell the fan only starts when it needs to, but I don't know if that could be the issue. The fan starts moving jaggedly back and forth and making a grinding noise whenever I start a semi intensive program. I tried cleaning it out with an air canister to no avail. I doesn't seem like anything is blocking the fan. What should I do?

Best solution

Is that really the only solution? That is seriously going to be a pain.

Disassembling a power supply is the only option other than RMA, and that is very dangerous. Those massive capacitors hold a potentially lethal charge. Do not attempt it.
