I could have sworn that my Pundit (SiS) has a PSU fan. It's actually the  
thing making the most noise (not that it's a lot, but I hear it clearly in  
a quiet room) unless the CPU is busy transcoding or something and the CPU  
fan is cranked up.

If there isn't a PSU fan, then something magically blows hot air out the  
back of my myth box... =)
