    That tells us absolutely nothing. That is comparable to walking into a doctors office and saying, I feel pain shortly after waking up, what is it?

    Despite the fact that you have fans "inside" your "cpu", it very well be related to heat dissipation. Watch the temperatures of your VPU, CPU and chipset if possible.

    The second, but possibly less likely in probability, would be a PSU that is either cannot provide the required power, or the power it does provide is dirty and unstable. Don't just assume your PSU is "good".

    Are you met with a blue screen of death at any point? Do you have any errors? Does the following directory exist on your HDD (if so post the .dmps within it): C:\Windows\Minidump? Have you tried updating your VPU and chipset drivers?
