    You have to have met a minimum post requirement to share links, this is how spammers are stalled from posting links.

    Could you break up the link. Just space out the dot and com. Internet. Com

    You are going to have a hard life if you think that everyone should bend the rules for you.  The fan failed after warranty; replace the fan or buy a different PSU.

    Sounds like the fan is rubbing on something. Have you looked into the power supply to make sure nothing is stuck against the fan?

    pretty much this.
     
    It sucks that it fell outside warranty, but thems the breaks...
     
    Replace the fan....if the power supply is enough for you.
     
    Tho they degrade over time....might want to replace it anyway.

    How would you replace the fan? I've heard that PSUs shouldn't be DIYed so how would shops open them safely?

    Warranty is already expired due to not buying a 10 year warranty PSU, so taking it apart doesn't void anything, it has no warranty anymore.
     
    If it's as simple as a fan failure, that's an easy fix.
     
    There's literally nothing to lose, power it down, drain it completely (hold power button with the PSU unplugged), take it out of the computer, open it up & figure out what size of fan you need as a replacement & get'er done.
     
    In the future, buy units with 10 year warranties if you don't want to deal with this sort of thing.  Simple as that.
