My System Specs

Default Slight audible PSU buzzing

for the longest time every once in a while I could hear this slight buzzing coming from the back of my PC . I thought that it was just the vibration of my water pump that is mounted there. but today when I was installing a couple of video cards and cleaning out the dust inside my pc. when I started up my pc with the side cover off I discovered that the sound is coming from my PSU I take it that I will probably have to replace my PSU?

The PSU is a Realpower pro 750watt and I was looking in the manual and it says something about automatic fan control not sure if this would have anything to do with my problem
