are evo blue 750w psu's supposed to adjust their fan speeds lower than 500 rpm ? cos mine has whenever i look at in bios its fluctating between 550 rpm and 480 rpm although the specs says 1400rpm +- 10%, i know it changes depending on load. but the bios says its in the red warning zone and i wouldn't have known about it except for my blue screen of death event last week which has me worried that i'll fry my new computer :(

Is it hot when touching PSU case with your hand?
Then I think the sensor isn't working (probably).
Still on warranty? If yes then RMA it to get a replacement immediately...

Till it fails??!
You'll regret later when it (PSU) fails and also take the whole of your components die with it...

Well, let's be sure first, download HW Monitor:
http://download.cnet.com/HWMonitor/3000-2094_4-10793486...

Install it and use that program to monitor the temps and the voltage of CPU and the others...
Printscreen and post again here... :)

Since your power supply does not have a fan rpm cable and can't possibly be giving you an rpm reading I'd look to something other than it as the cause of the problem.

its the bios thats giving me the rpm reading , i've tried contacting thermaltake but they seem to be giving me the run around as to what the evo blue fan speed can go down to , its all very frustrating :(

It's not a reading from the psu.
In order for you to get a reading, wether from the bios or some other software, there would have to be an rpm cable connected from the psu to the motherboard.
Your psu doesn't have one.
