Default HX1000W question

I just did a paper clip test. The fan is quiet but when I put my ear right up against the fan can hear a faint buzz noise. Its hard to tell if its the fan or something else. Any thoughts about this? Also are there other ways to make sure the PSU is working correctly with no issues?

Physical multimeter would be another way. Do you have any reason to think it's not working up to par?

How would I go about using the multimeter? Also, is that buzz noise anything to worry about? I can hear it when I put my ear close to the psu. Otherwise right now that's the only issue. I haven't hooked up everything yet, just paperclip and one fan. Also, that buzz noise is intermittent.

Better yet, what type of noise is normal. How should the fan sound?
