The fan only ever gets loud when I'm either playing SimCity or watching Netflix. I have no clue what the problem could be. Any advice would be helpful.

The PSU I use is the Corsair GS700.

Thanks in advance.

Those tasks might be at the bad spot of PSUs performance. When full capacity is used, the load on the PSU might not be as high as with 80%. If the fan gets too loud, you should contact Corsair.

A good gaming power supply must provide the cooling you need when you're pushing it hard, but it should be quiet when you're not. GS Series PSUs accomplish this through excellent efficiency — it generates less heat, so it requires less cooling — and a temperature-controlled 140mm fan that automatically adjusts its speed to meet demand. It doesn't even spin up until it's needed.

So does that mean I shouldn't worry about the fan ramping up?

Will only ramp up when needed.
