It may be due to overheating. Have you had a look inside the case recently to make sure the fans and insides are not clogged up with dust ?

Typical of over heating, open it up and have a good clean out, most important is the heat sink on the PSU you may have to remove the fan to do this.

After cleaning out the interior, fire it up with the side off, so can see if all the fans are working.
