So an outage killed my old PSU, the one in thaf part list. I went out and got an insignia ns-pcw5250 520w psu. The thing's fas rattling like crazy and spinnin loud so I went back to best buy and got ANOTHER one of the exact same model. After installing that one the loud rattling fan issue seemed to be gone. Now occasionally when I put my pc under A LOT of load playing games with high demands like crysis 3 my psu fan spins fater again, not rattling, not squeaking, just slinning fast. Fast enough that you'd say "wow, that fan's a little loud" but getting close to saying "I wow turn off that pc NOW that thing's going crazy.
I'm almost positive it's the PSU fan spinning. I can feel it spinning from the bottom. I have it on a flat, hard surface to ensure airflow. Is there anyway I could monitor the fan speed and temp of the psu to figure out if this is normal or not?
