Do you unplug the PSU from mains power before taking things out? If not, the PC is probably detecting you taking them out, and is triggering a BIOS change. You should always unplug the PC when doing anything inside.

That's weird. You should try unplugging the PSU from mains and just leaving it like this for an it 5 minutes to see if it occurs without you taking the GPU or RAM out.

It is odd for the pc to do that and the engineering reasons why is out of reach for me and probably most people here. Simplest solution would be not remove anything when cleaning and just use compressed air out side toward the whole pc every now and then, few times a year. I like your enthusiasm but can make do without dismantling parts.

Any idea why that’s happening?

All just

just got home after 2dayz of Not powering on and its not booting
Now im suspecting its a ram issue...I unplugged psu cable again and replugged and now it gave me overclock failed all settings have been restored...i went into bios and realized Xmp is still on but ram has defaulted to stock 2133mhz.
Can it be the ram?

Try each stick individually in each RAM slot to see if problems occur or not. This would show whether it is a problem with one of the sticks, on of the slots, or neither.
Alright will try that...have noticed if i turn off xmp and dismantle parts ,it’s able to boot.
Issue happens again when i re enable xmp.
Will try with xmp enabled on one stick to check if issue will happen again.
Thanks for your help

Very weird. Download memtest86 (https://www.memtest86.com/index.html). Create a bootable image onto a USB. Simply use Rufus, on the top drop-down menu I believe it is, you can choose FreeDos, ReactOS etc. Here choose the .IMG from Memtest. Create the bootable drive, then put it into the PC, boot into (either boot menu or changing priority in the BIOS) Memtest, then run a test. This will test your RAM to look for any problems.

Note - once you are done with the bootable USB, you can simply format it, you aren't stuck with Memtest86 on it forever ;)
