Fan making noise

I recently bought a new computer and there is a fan that makes noise, however, when I turn my computer horizontally for a second, the noise stops nad when I turn it vertically it stays quiet for like 30 minutes or longer, when everything starts all over again. I opened up the case and it seemed like it was my PSU fan(CHIEFTEC GPA-500S8). How to fix it?

Replace the PSU of it is making the noise and it is not easy to find the problem.

It is probably a fan bearing seizing up and wobbling on its axiz.

it looks like I"m having the same problem as I just posted about the COONIX 800w PSU, same exact problem makes a terrible clicking noise when standing up.

I'm looking into replacing with a more known brand of PSU, I'm just not sure which model to get.

Well, I don't have a clicking noise, it is like a big truck(only much quieter, but the noise type is the same).
