Weird thing when turning on pc

So I recently overclocked my FX-6300 to 4.5Ghz on my GA 970A-UD3 board. Now I'm pretty happy with the stability I was able to get out of this... but one thing remains. From the start when having the tiniest amount of bios settings changed the PC wouldn't boot normally. It'd turn on for 1 second, all fans shut down, it then powers on again and boots smoothly. This only happens over the course of maybe 2 seconds.. Is this a problem I created? Could I leave my setup as it is now or is this something that needs fixing?
Don't want to kill this rig :(

    That is pretty normal, when you are on OC activities, after any change you do, It will boot normally when you save the last change you do(after rebooting).
    I asume you already do stress test for 2 hours(prime 95, or other similar software), only then you can say having a stable overclock.
  2. I ran prime yesterday 3 hours. It's all looking good just that booting that's worrying me a bit. I'll try rebooting now

    if you dont touch anything on your bios settings, does still PC not boot normaly after rebooting ?
  4. Seems to have rebooted normally now. and yes when having bios on 'optimized defaults' it's all good with booting

    I am asking with the PC overclocked, (for instance I OC my PC after the last saved bios change the PC does the thing you just said, OK thats normal, then after rebooting my PC turns on normaly).
    That is the normal situation your mobo must do.
  6. It booted normally now, thanks for the help. So it turned out I just had to reboot my computer after applying overclock.. Well I feel silly now :P
    Glad that problem is gone
