[SOLVED] Does having a fan close to an SSD damage it?

I recently bought some fans for my PC, it isn't a beast of a machine, so I was running with a single exhaust, now I bought one for intake, ever since then the SSD is having some problems, sometimes it won't boot until I restart the computer several times, or it will simply crash mid-use. I tried troubleshooting and if I unplugged the fan, the SSD goes back to normal. I'm thinking this might be a power supply issue, any thoughts?

PC specs:
  • i5-7400 not overclocked
  • 8 GB Single stick DDR4
  • 1 TB HDD 7200RPM
  • 128 GB SDD
  • 500W Power Supply
  • Running two 1080p monitors (1 Ultrawide + Widescreen)

I can't find much on that brand, they seem to have good and bad PSU. There are normally better choices like Corsair, EVGA & Seasonic.

you might want to get a better one if simply adding a fan disturbs the system.
