i currently have this OCZ power supply:

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

it runs well, but the fan is so loud, even when idle. whenever i turn on my computer, its quiet for a bit, then the fan cranks up and doesnt stop unless the temperature of my room is in the single digits. its been like this for about 6 months, and started about a week or two after i got the psu.

so im thinking of getting a new psu, either this:

or this:

http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=66656&promoid=1270

but im not sure which one to get. nothing in my computer right now requires anything more than 600 watts really, but i'd like to future proof my system. also, are there any dangers of a loud psu fan? other than being obnoxious, is it a warning sign that it may crap out soon? i also don't think RMA is an option, as this is probably just normal wear and tear.

thanks!

its still within warranty, so i guess I could RMA it, but i thought it wouldn't be accepted. I thought ocz would consider it just normal wear and tear.
