    So everything seems to be fine for my computer except the power supply.

    When I put my hand at the back, the air coming out the case fan feels cool, but the air coming from the back of the PSU feels very hot. It seems weird to me that the case air is cool but the PSU is so hot. The fan is also going about 300 RPMS faster than before and it's getting a bit noisy at night.

    Is it possible there something wrong with the PSU? It seems weird that there's cold air out the case fan but hot air from back of the PSU.

    Temps w/ side case open are 37 CPU (amd 64 939 no oc), 26 sys, 32 PWM

    psu's get really hot. The air out of mine is always WAY hotter than the rest of my case.
