Question Sometimes my PC boots with a weird grinding noise.

Hi!

Since a year or so back, sometimes my PC boots with a weird type of grinding noise. It happens every fourth boot or so. Once it happens, I just restart once or twice and it goes back to sounding normal and works like a charm. What can be the problem? I feel like it's related to the booting process since it only occurs from time to time.

Specs:
  • i7 8700K @ 4.7 GHz
  • 16 GB DDR4 RAM @ 3200 MHz
  • GeForce 1080 strix @ base clock
  • Corsair Hydro H115i
Thankful for any feedback!

Kind regards,

Bosse
