Thinking either PSU or Case fans are on their way out

If they are the Noctua L.N.A.? They will limit the RPM, so cooling will be less efficient.
Also just hit me. I have low volt adapters for the two fans in question.. Should I try swapping to these lower volt/lower noise connectors when I get home and check, as a temp solution?
Fan control. See if it could be managed with the Asus Mobo utilities, (EPU Engine?)
That should be OK. I asked as some people use a Molex adaptors which can have bad effects on power distribution.
the GTX680 has a 6 and 8 pin connector for power on it, my PSU has a small 2 pin to connect up to the 8 pin.
Any chance of borrowing a PSU to swap in and do a test?

This is the cooler I use on the CPU. And right now, low RPM is better than 0 RPM on my top 200mm fan. The top fan helps with the air from the PSU and the GPU quite a bit, noticing higher temps on a card that should be pulling lower temps than my 6950 DirectCU I had in there prior.
Has L.N.A and U.L.N.A. adapters.
Was also tempted to get a Zalman fan controller to replace the chassis one..

These may be different than my previous volts, as its not running stock any more. They were default settings originally for when I put the new hardware in, and reverted the BIOS to defaults. Went back to my old overclock profile to regain some performance.

Sorry about the delay, things have been busy around here.
