On some models it also means the fan will almost never spin because it hasn't crossed a power threshold that requires the fan to move, and that could be worth the price bump for some. Then again, the P2 1200w I had was in eco mode it's whole life and it broke after 2 years...not using that mode again.
Here's what I got:
Check psu orientation. If you're on carpet, you could be choking the fan if it's facing down. Raising your case or flipping the unit around should help if that's what's happening.
Monitor voltages in bios/multimeter to see if everything's in spec (Usually +/- 5%, and you shouldn't see any rapid fluctuations).
Blow dust out, if any.
Run in normal mode and see what happens.
Monitor power usage with killawat.
When in hybrid mode, the fan should be off when utilizing less than 30% power capability. At 30-50%, it should be in silent mode which is 16dba, and above that it'll ramp up the fan to more audible levels as power consumption increases. In normal mode, instead of running passively at 0-30%, it'll run in silent mode (16dba), which shouldn't be audible unless you have a super low noise floor in your room or if you got noisy bearings.
