Wierd power issues

I have had this computer for about 5 years now and I am having some problems with it and wanted to get your opinions on what it might be.

When I power up my pc it seems like it is getting power but it is very weak (fans are barely audible); but if I turn it off and turn it back on it will sometimes start up no problem ( sometimes I have to cycle a few times to get this to work with each time having a louder fan noise but still weak). After that I have no problems I can run things like crysis and other games with no problems and can leave my computer running indefinitely with no crashes or others issues. These problems also happen if I put my computer to sleep.

So could this be my power supply or maybe something else (I have taken my computer apart cleaned and disconnected and reconnected all power connectors).

Thanks for your help and advice.

PSU or motherboard failing would be my guess.
