Default question about ppl who have hiper psu's

my fan on the psu thats in the very back keeps spinning after i turned the computer off, like it doesn't turn off. Anyone else have one of these hiper type r 580 watters with the same problem or is it supposed to do that?

wow.. i dont think any psu has ever done that...

Question:
Does it eventually turn off?
Do the other things in your computer stay on?

I read ina couple reviews that the fan exhaust fan keeps spinning for up to 5 minutes after turning off the computer. This is a plus. Now if it is spinning for like 30 minutes, Iono.

I had an old e-machines and the power supply fan kept on spinning after it was turned off, then after about 5 minutes the computer would turn back on lol. At that point I said to **** with this and tossed the power supply.
