    Thanks to everyone for chiming in so far!

    Just to clarify again, the concern is not whether I could find a workaround solution with a different usage scenario, it's whether the power supply or other component has a threatening issue, which seems very possible (given that this shouldn't happen), how to diagnose such an issue, and what to do about it.

    Here's another thought - maybe the fault is in the fan controller after all - if the wiring is faulty such that during switching there is momentarily no load (short circuit), could that upset the 12V rail and glitch the system? Would/should the power supply be able to handle that, or would it be too fast for protection circuitry to kick in?

    To me your last question doesn't mean that much: if there were no load, how can it be a short circuit? And if the PSU see a short circuit, it should shut off, or likely burn something.
    As said, put your whole rig out of the case, and try to power it with a different PSU.
    Best, Luca
