Default hiper psu, strange shut down

i have the type R, 580w
and when ever i shut my comp down the fan will stay on a little just like it should then, if there arent any lights on you can see the fan's leds flickering, it wont be moving its just giving me the feeling like it shouldnt be doign that or its faulty
im surpirsed no one else has asked about this problem, any opinions?

Some power supplies have the fans on to vent the hot air with in the Power supply.(After shutdown) Its normal so long as it shuts off after awhile. Note: Not all PSU's do this.

I would get rid of it - RMA. Sounds like its going to die.

You don't want this to happen (same PSU):

Ever power supply Brand out there has a story Like that. Even OCZ and PC Power and Cooling. If you search long enough you will find them. It doesn't mean it will happen to you. Just RMA it once and if it still happens, replace it.
