    The problem which you have listed is similar to mine.

    The reasons which I have found were:-
    1)psu is not giving enough power to the system
    2)full utilization of capacity at the time booting (creating a noise)
    3)Old psu

    Try replacing it with the new one or if its in warranty just get it replaced with the model.
    I have chosen Corsair 850w AX as my psu.
  4. Thanks guys for your help going to RMA. Hopefully I will get a new one
