    or most of it anyway. My monitor has gone off but fans are spinning, mobo and ram are lit up.
    I have changed to a Z170 Gaming K3 mobo and Corsair Crystal Series 460X Mid Tower and front panel leads are fine.

    Edit: Some five minutes later it has completely shut down.

    What should I be looking at?

    Does it do it all the time? Sounds like a feature in the UEFI is set to do that.

    So far this afternoon it has.
    I had a lot of trouble activating so it actually has not been restarted much but as luck would have I noticed all the fans were the wrong way round which is when I noticed this oddity.

    what should I be looking for in the BIOS as I have not played around with that as yet?

    Anything related to keeping the USB ports on when the pc is off, or post-shutdown cooling [where it keeps the fans spun up for a few minuts post shutdown] if that's still a thing.

    Nothing like that as far as I can see.

    Sorted but not sure why though it might have been the BIOS update or the reset to default settings in the BIOS.
