Use the DVI or DP outputs if you can.

DVI-D and HDMI are almost the same thing using different connectors, which is why passive adapters can be used to switch between the two. Intermittent misdetection could be caused by a bad solder joint breaking connection when the area gets hot.

If you tried a different port on the GPU and got the same result, then that sounds like a bigger board-level issue with the GPU than only the HDMI port.

A bad PSU can also cause things to randomly malfunction. What PSU do you have in there?
My PSU is a crosshair v650 and I haven't tried using a vga you think that may fix that?

If your GPU supports VGA/DVI-I output, it doesn't cost much to try it.

AFAIK, Corsair doesn't have a V-series PSU line, only VS which isn't particularly good. If your motherboard has debug LEDs of some sort, check them to see at what stage of the boot process the system locks up. If your board doesn't have those, hook up a case speaker to the motherboard's PC-speaker header and check for a code there. If you get nothing, then your PC isn't even starting to POST before hanging on something.
