I recently upgraded my computer with a Thermal Take smart 750 watt psu, an AMD FX 8320 and a Gigabyte GTX 770 2gb, I'm not quite sure where I should have posted this so i'm here. Every night since the upgrade, I am awoken by the beep of my pc booting up and the fans going. I am not sure what the problem is or how it could have happened, any help is appreciated.

Can you go into Bios and check to see if Wake-on-LAN (WOL) is enable?
Also, since you're in Bios check for Power Management option > Remain of after power failure is Enable/Disable?

I couldn't find either of those in the bios. I have a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 motherboard if that helps. Where exactly in bios do I find these? Under power power managment, I did not see a "remain off after power failure" nor did I see WOL anywhere in bios.

According to the User's Manual on P.37, wak on LAN is under ErP. Also, there are power on password/mouse/keyboard check those while you're in there and disable them and test out.
As for the Power management, the manual said under AC Back.

hope it helps,
