I've recently installed a new 450 watt psu (jeantech 4 fan) and am slightly concerned about a warm plasticy smell, do you think this will gradually go away or should I be worried?

New electronics always has that sort of smell. Hopefully it will fade away in a few weeks. My new power supply is just losing this smell after about 2 weeks use.

Thanks I thought that it was probably ok, maybe I should install an air freshener inside, lol.

No, just think of it like a new car. When that "new" smell goes it's time to think about buying something else ;-).
