No fans are not THAT demanding it's what 2-5 watts each it's not like and household fan with 1-4 pounds of blade on it .

Are you experiencing instability? if so I'd be looking elsewhere for your problem... your PSU is adequate for your needs

So it seems like a "brownout" situation? When you turn on your computer it feels as though the power surges?

If I were you, I would in fact replace the PSU, but, only after I had the mains in my house checked by a professional.

Then I would get a 850w Corsair or Antec. Just to be sure.

+1 A 650 is plenty for your rig ( imo)

I can't see your specs because I'm on my cell phone, but that sounds more like a motherboard issue than a power issue.

This, sounds like something could be shorting out too

I would think it would not turn on at all then, no?

I would recommend getting a CHEAP SSD for a maximum performance boost.
