VS 650 fan making loud noises

My power supply is making random loud noises. It happens even on idle mode. This build has been just a few weeks old. The sound happens every few minutes then stops, then comes back again. I don't see any pattern. But maybe, you could compare it to a cow's sound just with a bit of vibration.

Well, if it's under warranty, I wouldn't "fix it up" in fear of voiding your warranty.

 

But what I would do is see if it's something as simple as the fan rubbing against the fan grill. Take the PSU out and give the fan a spin. If it hits the grill, simply pry out the grill from the fan.

 

Sleeve bearing fans can have quite a bit of play. And the housing on the VS series is only .7mm thick (typical is .8mm) and has no fan grill, so if the PSU was dropped a few times during shipping (totally typical for FedEx, UPS, etc.), the grill can push into the fan causing the two to rub against each other.
