Damn! that desktop background should come with a warning.

Your hard drive is really really hot. Either it is failing or the airflow is poor.

How are your GPU and CPU temps?

My cpu temps with prime is middle 50 c
and gpu with furmark depends on fan speed but on auto not higher then 65-70

Those temps aren't bad. Can you open the case and touch the hard drive and see if it feels hot?

I already removed the drive and started up same problem even when the drive is not in there, but its strange because my problem is diffrent from the other threads here because after it happens i can normally boot again and just go to desktop, amd.other people cant.

i tryed to try with 1 gpu and worked good then tryed the other 1 to and worked good also,
so i really test everything but only my psu not

Honestly it sounds like a dodgy PSU at this point.
I suggest trying to barrow one if possible.
