    What sort of noise?

    Could it be the mounting? Screwed in too tightly? Not enough?

    Did it come with a rubber "grommet" to insulate it from the case?

      It might just be vibrations as michaelkenward is alluding to. If it's anything more then send it back as PSU's are not something you should attempt to fix yourself

        I dont know too much about this model, but I can say that many modern PSUs run very cool, and often have a 0 fan setting when in low power use. Some fans, if they aren't well specc'd can hit a voltage where it isn't quite enough to start spinning, but it is trying to, resulting in a start/stop, and if the fan needs a minium of say, 50% (6v) this is quite a high speed (yet rather common) for a fan to be kicking in, causing a more subtle but similar sound to a faulty HDD which would power up then stop, power up then stop.

          probably, yes. that being said as you can see there could be a few reasons for it making noise, and just being called funny, it is hard to say what it could be
