Hello,
My pc has been acting wonking these past couple of weeks specs in signature.

1. When I change to different bios settings for different stable overclocks the pc won't boot, the pc will shut down but doesn't turn back on after that.
What I do to make things work again I unplug my PSU for a few seconds or minutes depending on my situation then replug the PSU then press the case's power switch. It then brings me to the "choose your settings" screen, then I type "Alt+xnumberx" then reboot.

2. When I reset CMOS the PC will not turn back on from the get go like before, it used to just turn back on and I'll go on with my day.

3. Now when I try to reflash the bios it doesn't reboot till I do #1 and #2.

What I was thinking at first is the boot order saved in the overclocked bios settings, but I never changed anything. I have a few overclock settings saved ranging from 4.5Ghz-4.8Ghz with nothing changed in the settings but settings associated with overclocking my CPU/RAM.

Another thing I've noticed is if I get past all this and resetting the motherboard to defaults and JUST setting XMP/memory voltage it won't restart like it normally does before.

Is my OS boot order corruped or screwed up?
Is my PSU about to Die isn't properly power up the motherboard?
This PC is fairly new and these issues has me amazed that it's already breaking down so fast.

I don't want to have to RMA my motherboard again, then have to wait for a different one.
But if I have to then so be it, but if I have to do it again, then that would suck a lot.

Anyways enough of my rambling...

Any thoughts on this matter or ideas what could be the cause of this?

Thanks for your time...

1- Change motherboard battery.
2- Try different BIOS versions.

I would do #2 after changing the battery and testing current BIOS.

Have you looked online if other owner had similar issue?

I've skimmed through Google and didn't find anything specific at all.

Thanks for the suggestions!!

Do you have issue with default setting as well?
Have you tried the second bios (if you have dual bios)?
I would test with higher latency and lower frequency also.

Yes it happens at defaults..
I changed yhe CMOS battery with a fresh new one, it seems like i dont have yo completely remove the battery and wait to reboot.

When I restore defaults or load an overclock profile, it wont boot, i wil have to shut off the PSU and wait a few minutes/hours for it to boot.

I posted a thread on the MSI forums too and submitted a ticket, just waiting on a response from MSI.
