AX860i | Fan Spin Up on Boot

Simple question - is it normal for the AX 860i fan PSU fan to spin up to what sounds like full speed on a fresh boot of the computer and then be on for about 10-15 seconds before spinning down? This happens only when I power on the computer (not after a restart from Windows).

 

It appears that the fan spins down once my CPU beep is heard or very shortly thereafter.

 

I haven't had a power supply do this before but after boot it is dead quiet - as in no coil wine no fan noise nothing - which is AWESOME. :)

 

Thank you in advance.

Yup, this is normal. When first starting up the PSU will do a self check of the fan and spin up to full speed for a second or two , then settle back down. From what you are describing all is normal;):
