Try turning "DRAM training" to disabled.. sounds like its failing on the first boot due to incorrect training settings between RAM and IMC. *If it were volts.. it should repeat every boot.. not only on the first.
*lack of uncore/Ring volts = fail to load OS.. usually hardlock to blackscreen
*lack of vccin = POST fail or BSOD loading OS
*too much vccin = 'lost' VGA signal.. CPU "forgets" PCIE link and needs reboot to correct
*SA voltages are really dependent on what type of IC your RAM are, along with quantity of memory and total latency ... usually enough means you can POST.. too little and no POST
