That could just be because your new PSU's fan spins at a higher RPM than your old one and you're just not used to it yet.

If you're truly worried about temperatures, take your PSU out of your system, but still leave it connected to everything. Then turn on your computer, launch a game, and hold the PSU where it intakes air. If it's warm, you're fine, but if it gets a little too warm you either have a busted PSU or you need one that can supply more Watts and Amps to your build.
