Default Power supply problem

I have a 600w ATX power supply I've had for one month. It has dual 80mm Fans one night I was playing warcraft 3 and noticed my computer was very quiet. I haven't checked the fan outside of the case out of sheer laziness of pulling it back and finding a flashlight. But once in a while the fan inside still turns on and keeps everything cool. Is this normal or a problem?

Best Regards,

It won't be a problem until the computer shuts down from overheating. You should replace the defective fans.

Default oh boy electronics!!!!

I wonder if it has a built in thermostat of some kind. Probably a question better answered by the manufacturer. Good luck....
