So i got this issue with the psu where the fan doesn't spin at all in eco mode, i only noticed the other day due to the psu itself starting to crackle possibly from overheating cos the fan isn't on to cool it!
 
I understand the unit in eco mode should be silent zero fan spin until it reaches 45c but it doesn't spin no matter what i do.  I could be playing an intensive game like cyberpunk and it will not spin. 
 
Is this a common issue or something i could do to fix it?  The unit was bought secondhand and i wasn't aware the warranty had just run out as well so im kinda stuck with it.  
 
Rig specs:
i9 9900k
RTX 3090
8 x 120mm fans
watercooling D5 pumps x 2
a few SSD's, M.2's and 1 mechanical drive.
 
The system pulls around 650-700w at the wall when gaming so it should definitely be enough to spin the fan up in eco mode but unfortunately im at a loss as nothing happens until i turn off eco mode then it spins...loud!
 
 
I've submitted a ticket and waiting for a reply but with it being just out of warranty i think they might not be able to help... neither do i want to open up the psu incase they do help...

    Well , I'd either leave the fan on all the time  or just make sure my case had great airflow to keep it cool enough,.. because opening up the inside of a PSU after it's been in use is Extremely dangerous >>!!
     
    I highly advise against it , unless you are an expert at wiring & capacitor discharge procedures. Units will hold power inside for quite some time after being unplugged ..
     Maybe consider taking it to a computer repair shop & let them replace the fan/ diagnose it .?

    Unfortunately its a dual chamber case Lian li O11D so the psu sits in its own chamber away from everything else.  I don't mind leaving the fan on but its incredibly loud to the point where if i could i would want to switch it out for another more quiet and efficient fan.  Is it a standard 3 or 4 pin header fan?  PWM or not?
     
    Thanks

    Should be a 2-pin mini connector for the fan and a standard case fan of approximately the same airflow would work if you cut off/splice the fan's +/- wires to the mini connector..It's DC voltage controlled..I don't think the issue is the fan itself.

    Any idea why the fan might not be working in eco mode?  I can't figure it out nor can i open up the psu as advised above incase of damage.  I need a solution, anything to test or look out for that might be stopping it from working as intended?
     
    Thanks

    The fan controller is borked, probably.

    Yes, and you can't replace it.
