The PSU is fine to be honest, if you feel like you want to replace it then that's fine but it's not needed.

If the fan ticking problems irritates you just change the fan since its out of warranty.

with a PSU of that spec, any low level 120mm fan will do, I'd pull your PSU apart, check the measurements on your existing fan and get a replacement.

Arctic cooling make some good ones, as well as scythe. It's mainly if it's a 25mm fan or a 38mm fan (I think those are the right numbers)

Stock fan is an ADDA AD1212HB-A71GL, run on just two wires:
12V, 0.37A, 2200 rpm, 85.2 cfm, 39.1 dB SPL, 3.45mm/H20 pressure*, ball bearing

*listed as 0.136 inches pressure

You don't need to get something with equivalent cfm, but don't go too low.

Try to match the pressure rating too (or even go with a higher rating if you find one).  That's very important for close-proximity cooling like this.

TBH you could fart on that PSU to keep it cool, nothing at all wrong with it but it's not exactly pumping out the wattage really.

If you're that concerned just go with a gentle typhoon AP15 or something.
