Default Are noctua fans sufficient as a PSU fan?

When I built my PC, I went all out for silence. I have 3 radiators in my case, with no fan running over 1000rpm.

But one thing I disregarded was the PSU, I went with the OCZ EliteStream 800W PSU, and right now it is the only component that is preventing my computer from being completely silent (the PSU is quiet, but it is not silent). I had a older OCZ 400W PSU that was absolutely silent, so I never thought much of it.

The question, I kind of want to replace that fan with a Noctua one, but do Noctua fans push enough air so replace a fan that is on a 800W PSU?
