    I have a Razer Blade Stealth with a Core (using a GTX 970) hooked up to it. The Core is also connected to my external monitor via HDMI. As soon as any load is placed on the GPU, the system locks up and crashes. Immediately prior to crashing, graphics corruption occurs on the external monitor (which is rendering the game, or even just Chrome sometimes), but not on the laptop screen.

    I've tried running the graphics card in another PC, and it works fine. FurMark crashes in 1-2 seconds. Troubleshooting steps I've tried:
    1. Uninstalled/reinstalled and updated all drivers to the latest versions, and run the Razer updater tool
    2. I've tried it with the external monitor attached to the laptop instead of the Core.
    3. I've reset BIOS to defaults.
    At this point, I suspect that it's a power supply issue in the Core. The Core is also really, really loud when it runs, with a buzzing/grinding sound. Has anyone else experienced these issues?
