Question about Computers & Internet
It may be that you PSU will overheat. It depends on the features of your PSU as to what the consequences of this are.
Some PSUs are equipped with a thermal cut-out in which case your PSU will simply turn itself off. Others will overheat, and internal damage to components will ensue, and your PSU and possibly your computer will cease to function (permanently). Your PSU may just catch fire in the worst case.
However, it may also be that your SMPS fan is thermally activated and only comes on when the PSU temperature is greater than some threshold; this is a design feature of the PSU if it is present. Some fans are equipped with a speed con troll that links the speed of the fan to temperature of the PSU. See you PSU details to determine which of the it may be. If it is a Zalman brand PSU, most likely it has a themally controlled fan. This feature also has propriety names such as "Silent Fan Technology" or "Whisper Fan"
