    Question This may be a weird question but can a faulty front panel power switch cause a boot loop?

    As the title says, Ive been having an issue where my pc would randomly turn on and off by itself even if it was previously shut down.

It's a 3pin on a 4 pin header on the mobo for the cooler, all other fans are 4 pin. The only thing aside from that that's changed is a...
