In the moment of frustration and just doing that one last stand. I got the cold boot to stop
(The only way I could boot was by turning computer off by the power supply and press the pwr button to discharge it, It boots the next time it's on and works every time strangely)
Coldboots started after switching to F6e, again in frustration I was thinking of starting from scratch and setting everything to default which I did and the cold boot was still present which got me baffled. So I redid the PWR off method and eventually got into the bios where this time I looked up the skylake overclocking guide and uped every voltage I could get my hands and voila no more cold boots.
This isn't pinpointed down to which one actually did something but hopefully, this helps you.
(Everything in small amounts and CPU multiplier is at 25x, keep in mind I was having cold boots during stock)
I changed the Vcore, Dram voltage, VCCIO and system agent voltage too
Turned turbo boost off, hyperthreading too for experimenting
Take all this with a grain bucket of salt as I worry I have placebo effect kicking in.
it came back but this time it's able to boot after few loops. I am just tired right now and switched back to F6 again
I just finished the game after who knows how long, thinking of setting it at 4Ghz and call it a day. Besides it only seems to crash during games. I noticed the CPU utilisation is pretty low in that game and it barely budges from 60fps even at 2.5ghz.
I wanted to solve this before selling this computer, as I need to shed off some weight before moving to another country sometime next year but it seems I need to purchase a CPU or be a terrible person and sell it off with it
