They already have a solution for silence freaks such as yourself, the fanless platinum models

The 12cm ball bearing fan provides superior cooling performance to dissipate heat in the power supply enclosure while running whisper-quiet. Intelligent thermal control balances noise and cooling. Soft-mount rubber cushions reduce fan rotation and vibration noise. Plus, the universal ventilation (honeycomb structure) minimizes airflow resistance for maximum cooling efficiency.
When the power supply's "Hybrid Mode" is on the fan doesn't turn on until the load hits 20% (250W with this particular unit) or the temperature of the PSU hits 25Â°C. At this point, the fan's RPM's ramp up with the power supply's internal temperature.
The X Series adopts a clever “Hybrid Silent Fan Control” design, which offers three distinct operation modes, fanless mode, silent mode, and cooling mode. The X automatically adjusts fan mode and speed according to the ambient temperature level.

There are large capacitors located inside your power supply. They can kill you even after they are unplugged.
There's also a small potential that your modifications could cause the power supply to catch fire and burn the house down.
