Power supplies are not repairable as there is sufficient voltage in there to KILL you

The fan at the back of my pc, a red one, above the psu, used to be noisy. Having switched machine off and unplugged from mains, with a small clean paint brush, I wiped the accummulated dust off.

Very quiet again now. Don't know if that's of any help but thought I'd mention it ... ;)

A blast of compressed air might do the trick.
