Like for my A3000, I will for sure check whatever is necessary.
Capacitors in the PSU were all OK, and once the dust cleaned off, the fan got more silent.
Meanwell PSU is also a solution, but it would be only in case the original one fails.
Yeah, my PSU seems to be unusual with the leaky caps, all of the larger ones on the -5v/5v/12v side had leaked, but most people seem to report them as being just fine. No schematics either, which didn't help.
I still have my fan hooked up, it's not the quietest fan by any means, but mechanically it is sound,
