So I'm running into a bit of a weird issue. Whenever I cold boot my PC, the mobo displays a solid red CPU light and doesn't post (the fans are spinning and lights are on). I always fix it by hitting the restart button on my case once and it then proceeds to boot normally. It also doesn't run into any problems once booted (everything detected, no crashes, games run etc.). I have re-applied TIM to the CPU and re-set it. I have also re-set the ram and unplugged and re-plugged both the CPU 8-pin and mobo 24-pin. I should note that this issue only appeared once I installed my new GPU, even though I don't know how that would affect the CPU light. Could just be an extremely poor timed coincidence but might as well mention it. Any help on this is appreciated. Specs below
