Hello
Got a new gpu and everything seems to be working fine except pc starts back up immediately after I shut it down. The issue does not happen if the 8pin connector from psu is not plugged into the gpu. Also, after i shutdown the system if i switch off the PSU power button and switch it back on, the pc does not start by itself. Is that a faulty gpu or psu? Or what else could it be? Aside from that everything is working fine

Gigabyte support center suggested to tape pins 5 and 6 on the GPU side B. As I found online it helped someone. Not sure what effect it would have on overall performance though. Waiting for MSI to reply if there is any equivalent option to this on the software side maybe.
Writing in case someone's looking for a solution and hasn't found any yet.
