What is your parts list? Consider formatting your parts list.

3200C14 4x8gb working now not using xmp though just manual dialing it in
Maybe do a memtest86++ on the ram
Or just run it at default 2133 for a while to see if the boot mayham goes away or 1 stick drops off :/
I'm on 3801 bios also for at least the last month or so from 2101

Describe your problem. List any error messages and symptoms. Be descriptive.
- PC was just overhauled this week to replace thermal paste and clean out dust.
If I just let the PC boot normally I would get a B1 error (on the motherboard code display) or an MCE "Machine Check Exception" BSOD on boot attempt.
When I boot up the PC, the HDD makes a lot of noise (expected). Sometimes it would take a while before the motherboard passes POST (speaker beep) and during that time the HDD activity light constantly flashes.
Sometimes it would take much less time to pass POST. So it's inconsistent if we can say the HDDs are causing this problem.
Eventually Windows would go into recovery mode, attempt a repair (nothing can be done) and restart the PC.
This has several issues as I will list below.
- If the machine randomly boots properly it would enter windows recovery mode, then windows would restart the PC meaning that I would get another failed boot. This would result in a bootloop most of the time.
- Due to the issue above, I have disabled windows recovery and now it allows me to enter the OS normally by pressing enter, which bypasses the restart that windows would normally ask me for.
One time the bios only detect 12GB of memory instead of 16GB, but I haven't seen that issue appear again.
List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem.
- Resetting all setting in motherboard then try booting.
- Removing all SATA drive save for the 960 Pro NVME bootdrive then try booting.
- Using Windows safe mode (without internet).
- Using ASUS MEMOK button, worked a few times but not consistent
- SFC scannow, no error found.
- CHKDSK (iffy since I need to restart to get to this. If it fails to boot when restarting then CHKDSK won't run on the next successful boot).
- Reseating basically everything (the pc was recently overhauled).
- Cleaning of memory contacts using alcohol, not dirty.
However there's one solution that works: If I sit in the bios for a couple minutes, then manually select the drive I want to boot into, the computer will 90% of the time boot normally without any problems. Even though this method is inconsistent, it's the only method that would net me the highest success when trying to boot properly.

Provide any additional details you wish below.
This is not a new pc, it's pretty old but only encountered the problem recently.
Tried stock setting in bios and almost all the different permutation I can think of, problem is still here and I can't solve it.
PC behave normally when windows loads, no error, no weird stuff. Like 100% nothing ever happened to it.
