Alright, so I have a few issues in an odd fashion of which I'd love to get resolved.
I have recently built my girlfriend a Desktop for gaming. I am not new to PC Builds, so don't worry about being light :).
FX 6300 / 8Gb Ripjaw Series / 750 Ti / etc
Here is the issue.
The desktop was working great when it was first built a few days ago and when we installed Windows all was operational and sound. Although now, when we turn the desktop on we usually get a black screen. So we restart the desktop, and it will POST - sometimes make it to the Windows loading screen - then restart. Then the POST will flicker quick and then restart or make it's way to Windows. 
After a few tries, Windows usually boots and works great. Sometimes all day / for hours and even with gaming on it intensely all day. But then randomly if just browsing or playing a game - it will start the loop again.
Stumped on this, really. I am considering PSU - although all Voltages check out alright within the ranges in the Health Monitor on the UEFI/BIOS. If it was a GPU/Mobo I don't see how it could be consistently working so well then randomly have the hiccups.
Any ideas?

Ideas? always - good ones, not so often.

RAM? maybe

HDD? maybe

I'm assuming that you have gone through the BIOS settings carefully to verify all are correct. Also assuming that you have checked the motherboard site to verify that you have the latest version of the BIOS iistalled

Keep us posted

could you go to safe mode to see does your problem still happen in safe mode or not?
