Nope, nothing to worry about.

The fact that the spins when you first power it on shows that the motor is working. It simply isn't drawing enough of a load to necessitate the usage of the fan during operation.

If you posted the rest of your machine specs I would be able to give you a more detailed answer, but more than likely it looks like you should just enjoy your machine.

I would say replace the fan but if itzdanielp is right and psu fans are able to be load dependable then nothing to worry about i didn't know psu fans had that in them lol... check your partical psu model and see that is the case to be on the safe side

If your system is drawing less than 200 Watts from the GS600 it will be operating in fanless mode:

Yeah, that system is probably only drawing about 200 Watts under full load, so the PSU fan is never turning on.

I would say don't worry about it :)

Hi I have the same model and I would like to ask if it's long term safe for the fan to spin on and off in such frequent intervals instead of be constant on.
Take for comparison a car stack in traffic most of its use and you constantly change from neutral to first gear and so on. This will damage the transmission faster by say driving in highways with 100km/h.
