Ever since I installed an NVME 970 evo (cloned from SSD Samsung 850) my computer (very irregular and infrequently) will boot and have this issue, monitor will be black. The computer will then turn itself off then reboot and say overclock has failed. It then will run perfectly fine with no preformance issues. The only thing that is "overclocked" per say is the ram which with XMP on is running at it's rated speed of 3200 MHz.
Let me know if you have any ideas, I don't think it's the the ram as the issue started first boot after the NVME drive was installed with no prior issues.
System specs: i5 6600k (stock) Msi z170 m7 (latest bios) 16 gb (4x 4gb sticks 3200mhz xmp on) Msi 1070 gaming x Samsung 970 evo plugged into slot 2 on the motherboard. sata lanes 5-6 turned off.
