Question PC Consistently fails to boot first time after a few seconds, but will always boot second time

Jul 11, 2020
So i recently rebuilt my system, as in i pretty much swapped out all my components, bar my hard drives and graphics card (waiting for that RTX3000 goodness). So new case, motherboard, CPU, RAM, power supply, nvme SSD, CPU cooler, fans etc. It took a bit of messing around to get it set up and was getting into weird bugs at the beginning where i'd get to the desktop screen and i couldn't do anything for a good 2-3 mins with this new nvme SSD (Samsung 970 Evo plus). I think that issue has faded away after tinkering with even viewer.

However now i just get a consistent boot problem, well its not a massive issue but essentially every time i boot up my PC (after shutting down from the night before), it loads things up, MSI logo, windows logo comes up, so about 10 seconds or so, then it just cuts off. It happens pretty consistently on first boot, and then i just turn it on a second time and we are good to go, second time boots every time. I've looked into this already and the generic response is power supply, however its pretty much brand new and more than enough wattage for my needs (750W up from 550W), so i highly doubt its the power supply also with the fact it successfully boots on every second attempt. I don't know if there are software issues that can cause a first time boot failure, but any help is well appreciated, specs below.
