Also underpowered power supply[1]; booting is quite intensive.
My machine occassionally freezes on boot, esp. from cold, or
during normal operation (both Windows and Linux), and I've
suspected the psu for a while now.

[1] The situation is complicated by different current limits on the
different voltage rails, so you may have lots of power on the 12V
rail, but modern machines are heavier on the lower voltages.
