Is my Corsair-AX760 dieing?

In the past month or so I've heard what sounds like coil whine coming from the PSU and today I felt the PSU shroud/cowl over my PSU and it felt warm.
I've use this PSU for multiple builds and this is the first I've had problems out of it. Sadly I don't have the receipt and it was never registered.
On the PSU the fan is to normal.
The fan is pointing downwards so it shouldn't be starved for air on my shelf.

I'm wondering if there is a way for my to test my PSU to see if it's on the way out the door?

How dirty is it? I see a lot of people who don't thoroughly dust their PSU regularly and this does increase heat. Also, is your fan properly functioning?

As for coil whine, this doesn't always signify a PSU is dying. You can reference your voltages using HWmon or like programs but they don't always record correctly. Idealy you will need to loadbox it which is probably not feasible for you as that equipment can get expensive as the link I am providing shows.

I dusted out my entire case about a week ago.
The fan does spin, but can't entirely say it works properly as it may be on a fan curve.

Would I just be looking to make sure that the voltages being supplied are correct?
