Suddenly very loud

Summary: Besides the fan noise issue I had. This is a great little PSU. I would suggest it to anyone looking to build their own machine.
Pros: Amazing PSU. The 500 watt version is enough to power my medium gaming rig. It's very quiet even under stress.
Cons: A few months into use it suddenly starts to sound like a small engine, like a lawn mower.. It's nerve racking.. I have checked it with a flashlight for anything hitting the fan. It is fastened in snugly. And it's not vibrating. I have no idea why it is doing this, I have't had any hardware changes.
Summary: Needed a new power supply to drive a new video card I added to my system and found this one ..for a great price. It installed easily and the longer cables made routing a whole lot easier. Works great so far!
