As long as the load on the 5V line exceeds the load that the fan will present, the PSU won't even notice. It's when the load on the 5V line is less than the load that the fan presents that odd things will happen.

The only way I see that happening is by unplugging the mobo and any other perpherals. The likelihood then is that you're under the minimum load that the PSU requires anyhow.
