So yes, I would look at your PSU. Somehow, the cooler is getting power on the SATA +5V rail. If your PSU is shut off at the switch, that shouldn't be happening. If it's unplugged, that really shouldn't be happening.
I posted a thread on another forum too and one of them said that the caps on the mobo still offers power to the usb connections even with psu turned off. Doesnt the cooler get the power from the sata and not the usb?
