Default Quick PSU question

I was wondering what fan speed I should have my PSU set on. I don't know the exact RPM of the fans that are in it, but some technical specs can be found here: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?inv...at=CAS&cpc=DSP
When this thing is set to high it is LOUD! It can be heard over a fairly large CPU fan and another auxiliary fan. On medium, it blends right in just fine. I just don't want it to overheat and my computer go to the great part bin in the sky. Most of the time, this computer is for browsing the web and playing games on the internet, but I still do a lot of high-end gaming. Its the PC in the sig if you need extra specs.

Thanks guys!

EDIT: I usually have a powerful air conditioner on most of the time, so my "computer sanctuary" generally runs a nice 72 degrees F, but when the AC is not on, it gets up to 80 degrees. Also, programs like Everest and PC Wizard don't work too great, they say my mobo isn't supported. At least I still get hard drive temps with them.

My Computer: eMachines T5226 - Intel Pentium D Dual Core @ 3 GHz - Diamond Viper Radeon HD3870 OC Edition with 1 GB GDDR3 VRAM - 4 GB PQi Turbo DDR2-533 RAM - Corsair 650W PSU with 52A on single rail - TSSTcorp DVD-DL+-RW combo drive - Lite-on 52x CD-RW burner - Creative SoundBlaster X-Fi XtremeGamer - Logitech z5300e speakers - WinFast TV Tuner - Vista Ultimate 64-Bit. eBay name: Flightsimboy304
