Hello,I just finished my first build! It all boots up fine, everything works graphics, hdd etc. However, the PSU is stupidly loud. Unbearable. I'm not sure if this is a problem with the PSU? As the reviews said it was silent. Is there anyway to slow the fan down? Or should I contact the makers, or Ebuyer from where I bought it from? Thanks!

£70 for a PSU? It's gotta be this one: XFX 650W XXX Edition.

Better just replacing it as who knows if that PSU won't fail and potentially damage other components in the process.

If it's unbearable, it's likely somethings wrong with it (probably the fan within the unit). There are a lot of good psus out there. I'd suggest a return and then going with antec or corsair. I know rolli just said the same thing, but a little positive reinforcement never hurt :)
