Hello

This is my 1st official big computer build. I tried researching the issues I was having but have not been successful in finding the appropriate solutions. Current set up:
9900K overclocked to 5.0GHz stable
MSI x390 MEG ACE
EVGA 2080ti
Corsair Dominator Plat 3200
Kraken x73 AIO cooler
EVGA supernova p2 1000
Obsidian 900D

First issue in regards to monitoring the system or getting appropriate information. I cannot run cpuid cpu z due to the mutex locked error. I've tried disabling intel management engine interface as well as reinstalling cpu- z. I've also attempted to run cpu-z in admin mode. The only way I can semi monitor the system is by running the msi dragon center that comes with the mobo and msi afterburner to monitor GPU. I've also done a windows repair on the SSD since its the same drive I was using on my previous computer just to rule out some incompatibility issues. My other r system was a 4930K/x79 deluxe asus mobo which could run cpu-z.

My second issue is powering off my system. The system stays in an infinite shut down or restart screen. Only way to shut the computer off is to press and hold power button. I did the following to try and remedy https://www.howtogeek.com/349114/shutting-down-doesnt-fully-shut-down-windows-10-but-restarting-it-does/
I've also tried not overclocking as well as turning off xmp for both the cpu z issue and computer not turning off. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I transferred the drive with windows already installed. Is this a problem? I wanted to keep my programs without reinstalling. Should it be a clean install?
 
When you install Windows, the installer loads drivers and systems files for your motherboard and other devices. If you take that hard drive and put it in another computer with different components, Windows will try and come up with drivers that work with the new components. Sometimes it works, some times it doesn't and sometimes you'll experience corruption issues; the later is what is happening to your PC. You'll either have to live with the issues you posted about (and others may crop up), or do a clean install. https://forums.tomshardware.com/faq/how-to-do-a-clean-installation-of-windows-10.3170366/
