Fan != Fan. There are several levels of quality. There are fans of the same
form factor, but some provide a high air-flow and thus rotate faster. Faster
rotation, more noise.
If you are worried about cooling: Replace the fan in the PSU with a new one
that has good bearings and rotates slower. To get better cooling for the rest
of the system add an extra fan to the enclosure. Use a big fan with low RPM.

I still have to see a PeeCee PSU that is not cheap crap. And I doubt that there
are big differences in efficiency from the original PSU to an off the shelf

It is ATX.
