Hello, a little more than 6 months ago I built my own (mainly gaming) computer with a budget of around $2000 worth of Swedish money (Live in Sweden). I'll put the specs at the bottom.
I've experienced a variety of issues such as the graphics drivers crashing constantly when playing games etc, that issue I was never able to really fix but it was solved by overclocking my processor, weirdly enough. I did try all kinds of thing such as clearing my entire pc, using different drivers and eventually I replaced both the motherboard, cpu and graphics card but the problem persisted oddly enough (until I overclocked the processor).
Alot of things have gone wrong overtime, the thing I mentioned above is just one of the worse things that went wrong. But there is 1 problem that I still keep having from time to time that isn't really a dealbreaker or anything but is quite strange:
Sometimes when I shut down my computer and start it up again shortly after (manually shut down and start up again in a bit) or restart it from the windows menu this happens; It shuts down normally as always, and then when it starts back up again the screens are all black (I use 2-3 monitors depending on where I am) and it runs (I assume running some startup process) for about ~10 seconds and then it dies as if the power was cut and instantly tries to reboot again. It keeps doing this until I cut the power completely and start it back up again after turning the power back on.
If anyone has some sort of explanation to why this happens, or maybe an idea why I had to overclock in order to prevent graphics drivers crashes I'd be thrilled to hear it
I've made sure that my temperatures are all fine during idle and load both before and after I overclocked by the way, I've also tested my RAM an ran a bunch of different processor/graphics tests without any issues found anywhere.
