Alienware Aurora R6 Power supply

The unit isnt broken or anything..but is the power supply fan supposed to only turn on when playing a game? It also goes on and off when not playing a game. Not sure if its the PSU or not. Just noticed this today

Energy efficient PSUs are built so that with minimum load they are off or cycle. With max load they will run constantly. The idea is to have a quiet unit that consumes less energy under low load conditions. Many PSU manufacturers have the same design.
