are the fans plugged into the motherboard or the PSU? and by fans do you just mean the case and PSU fans, or is the fan on the CPU going as well?
that's a good point, sometimes people have their fans plugged into their motherboards so if it dies, the fans usually do not operate. but if you have your fans plugged into your power supply, they will turn on regardless of whether your motherboard is working or not
