Help, brand new build, power supply is making a weird noise

Just completed a brand new build 1o minutes ago.

Upon start up my power supply is making a fairly loud noise it sounds like the fan hitting something. Visually I cant see it happening, I restarted it a few times, nothing changes. The machine seems to be running fine and its currently installing windows.

The power supply is the PC power and cooling 750 W Silencer MK II.

Should I turn the machine off and return the power supply? Should I just let it run?


Other Components:
MOTHERBOARD Gigabyte p67A-UD4-B3
CPU INTEL 2500k
GPU MSI 560Ti
RAM 8GB Corsair Vengeance
CASE CM 690 II Advanced
HD Caviar Black 1TB

I'd really appreciate any help, and if I posted this in the wrong place please let me, I'm a newbie to the forums

  1. Turn it off, and return the unit, dont take any chances with all your new shiny kit, as it might all end in tears, also buy a better quality unit like these

  2. All good psu examples you linked Uther39, but a PC power and cooling 750 W Silencer MK II is a better unit.
