Default New psu, fan speed high

I just put a tx650 in my pc, I think I have all the cords rite as everything is working, but the case fan is going like a bat out of hell now, is there a way to lower it or did I mess something up?

Welcome to0 the forum.

You'll need to check if the fan has a built in controller switch, but if it doesn't you'll need either use a fan controller like this:
Newegg.com - ZALMAN FAN MATE 2 Fan Controller

Or if you have more than oine, something like:
Newegg.com - Sunbeam RHK-S Rheobus 20W Fan Controller (Silver)

After some reading I think its the corsair it self that is so loud. Kinda sucks because I need the upgrade for my new 6870, but I don't want to have a mini jet taking off by me all the time.

Actually, I just restarted my computer and it went quiet again. I can barely hear it now, and it was both the psu and the case fan. Now they are both running at normal after that restart.
