    I built a pc for my son's friend about 3 weeks ago.

    It all went well, pc booted fine and windows install went fine too.

    I left, he played games for the rest of the day.

    Next day I get a phone call from him saying it's stuck in a boot loop but it seemed like the power supply clicking itself on and off. I go back round and take the panels off and redo the wiring just in case I've inadvertently caused a short or something which seemed to do the trick.

    About 2 weeks later ( today) and it's randomly started doing it again, I mean wtf could it be.

    AMD ryzen 5500, 3060ti, 500gb crucial ssd, 16gb of ram and I think a Corsair 600w PSU. It's all in a Nexus case I believe that has a built in fan controller.

    The 500w one i took out yes, its since fired up again and I presume its been working ok as i haven't heard from him again today.

    Its very odd.

    Sorry I didn't respond earlier but hadn't noticed I'd had a response.
