I would then have to guess that the PSU is somehow faulty. What is the manufacturor/model of the PSU?

3-pin fan headers coming off power supplies are often attached to a thermal diode inside the PSU. It gets hotter, they spin faster. And there isn't a good correlation between CPU and internal PSU temps.

Yeah. If it keeps it up, then you probably have a problem with the fan itself. But I'd wager it's due to the PSU connectors being what they are--connectors on a PSU.
