CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W Fan Failure

Just received my power supply today and the fan is making a whining noise now & has even stopped for a short period.

 

Here's what happened,was playing a game & I got one of those dreadful BSOD,caused by my newly purchased ATI video card.Restarted the computer & heard the noise,it's definitely the PS fan.I need a replacement & just send the bill to ATI,never had a fan fail ever on a PS,is that a ball bearing fan on it or what?

 

The series of events could be a coincidence but it's hard to say.....lasted about an hour.

 

I'll take the fan if it has a 3 pin connector I can install it myself,thanks.

Thanks.The fan did restart with a little help.I don't believe it has totally failed & after further testing the noise (slowed down the fan) it didn't completely stop but slows down with the fan & is still present.I bought this PS because of all the good reviews,so I must have just received a bad one.Voltages look good though.
