its nearly 3yrs old i think and the fans turn on with the unit
the 80mm only ever stops when the psu is shut down but it spins for a while after to cool it some more.

I would say use a cardboard tube to try pinpoint the exact location of the buzzing but that would involve opening the PSU and voiding warranty.
yea i get you,i would have thought it is getting enough volts tho:sleep:
i am just reluctant to plug in my new hardware and i dont have an 80mm fan slim enough to replace the psu one and i dont fancy opening it up anyway...yet
