That's how an advanced PSU works today, the more current you draw from the PSU, the faster its fan will spin, hence the noise.

Some PSU are advertised as "silent", but I don't have one so I can't talk about it.

I don’t have an RMx but I would not expect the fan to be loud. Even under high load and full fan speed I would have expected little noise. Are you sure the noise is from the psu? What sort of noise is it?
It just sounds like a fan is ramping up and up. But now that i got close to the case it sounds like it might be my graphics card, it only has one fan so maybe?
