Default GS700 - FAN starts -stops every minute

Hello, I bought the GS 700 PSU. When I am in windows, fan is off but when I play games, FAN keep starting and stopping every one minute. Problem is, that it starts spinning at high speed, making loud noise (air turbulence noise). After 2 seconds, it starts to spin down, and after about 5-10 seconds it stops. This happens once a minute.
Probably there is no way how to turn off that annoying fanless technology.
By my question is, it is normal that it starts at high speed and then go down? I have quiet cpu and gpu fan, so this is really unpleasant.
(i3570k+gtx660 = about 200-250W -30% load -probably that is why the fanless technology keeps start/stop fan)
If i switch to another PSU, for example Corsair TX750 V2, it will also start running fan at high speed?
Thank in advance.

No, it's not normal. Please use the link on the left to request an RMA.

Hello, I found a solution. I just rotated the psu (heard this somewhere on forum), so the fan is pointing up. Now fan is turned off most of the time, even when I play games.
