I thought I would come and give something back to the community which has helped me to build a silent pc. Now I have crawled the internet and have not found one article about how to make the darn PSU fan quitter. Well I managed to do it in an easy non technical manner. This is a no solder job which was good for me
So the steps are not too hard and not too long but follow through and feel free to ask questions. I have attached some images and you can ask me questions and I will do my best to help.
NOTE: THIS METHOD VOIDS YOUR WARRANTY ON THE CASE'S POWERSUPPLY.

Side Note: I was able to get the case for $35 AU including the psu so I dont care about warranty lol..
What you will need
Phillips Head Screwdriver
80mm fan. (I used a fractal silent series 80mm fan cost me $8)
30 minutes of your life
Plug your fan into your mobo and find out which way the air blows. I know this is simple but you do not want to screw in the last screw and realise that you have put the fan in the wrong way.
Unplug the psu from power and any other devices. Wait at least an hour before doing work as there could still be current running through the system
Remove 5 screws at the back attaching the psu to the case (I kept all of my screws in a seperate area, if it helps write down on a piece of paper what they do and pile them up together).
Remove the psu completely out of the case and put it on a bench.
Remove the screws at the bottom which hold the fan chassis to the psu
Cut the red and black wires that come from the fan.
Put in your new fan making sure that the air is blowing into the psu not out!
Feed the wire through the hole. I had to rotate the little black grommet to slide the fan power wire through and cut some of the cable ties.
Pull the wire tight (do not break it).
Cable tie your wires back.
Screw backup the psu as you unscrewed it
Plug the psu fan into the fan section of your mobo.
Boot up your PC and depending on how hot your environment is you can either set your fan to full in the bios or automatic. I like to be on the safe side and turn it on full.
You now have a quiet aywun case which only cost you 50 or so dollars
