Issues powering on

  1. So I just case swapped my gaming rig, a lot of the parts are getting old and a bit outdated and I plan to replace everything inside soon. But my problem is after I power off the PC and come back from work, sometimes, but not always, when I turn the PC on it gets stuck in a turning on then dying loop. Right before it dies it sounds like my PSU is cranking pretty hard. But if I turn power off to the PSU or unplug the system then try again, it will turn back on. So is this a PSU issue? Or is something going over my head. Here's my specs

    CPU: AMD FX8350
    MOBO: ASUS M5A99FX
    GPU: NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 970 SUPERCLOCKED
    CPU COOLER: NZXT KRAKEN X41
    RAM: CORSAIR VENGEANCE 16GB
    PSU: ROSEWILL 1000W 80+ BRONZE

    Press and hold the POWER key until the system halts.

    when you restart, it will look fatal, but just ignore it and let it restart normally.
