It's like with my RM550x: it's always dead silent, but my power consumption never goes above ~350W either.
Hell, my old ass X58 with i7 960 OCed to 4.2Ghz and two ATI 6990s were drawing 1600 watts from a 110v wall monitor I had.....and that was using a AX-1200, lol
All my new stuff doesn't come anywhere near that rigs power consumption....
But on to the PSU fan....I don't think I've ever heard the fan noise on my Seasonic SSR-750PD 750W Platinum.....I hear everything else BUT the PSU fan. Unlsss OP has really quiet PC and it sits right next to you on the desk, maybe it could be an issue I guess......
