If it is on at the time of turning off then it stays on for about 2 minutes afterwards.

It seems that once the fan is activated it doesn't turn off until after the system is off.

Sometimes I have to start up the computer. Turn it off then start it up again to get the fan spinning.

All my other fans spin by default.

Any ideas?

Yeah...that just says the fans don't stop until the temp is below 40 after power off. Surely they should be on when the PC is running? Does the PC have to get up to 40 before they start or what?

Hey RedUK, I got my machine up and working and my PSU seems fine. I haven't really noticed the PSU fan not coming on, but I've just seen is now, and well like PZ said, it won't come on until it needs to. My CPU is at 33 when idle, my GPU is at 36.5 idle and my case is just under 30 when idle.

The crazy thing is when my GPU is under full load, it heats up immensely and I start to worry. ButI hear that is normal.

Your PSU is fine.
