Intel Core i5-4670K ( no OC ) Asus maximus VI Hero latest bios ( 1603 ) [2014 latest update 😞 ] Evga gtx 770 sc /w acx cooler XFX Pro Black Edition 750W SSD Samsung 256GB Pro Kingston HyperX Beast 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 KHX16C9T3K2/8X CoolerMaster Hyper 412 Slim Dell UltraSharp U2312HM NZXT PHANTOM 410

I have this system since summer 2013. 2 years ago i start noticing that sometimes pc wont boot. I thought maybe there was a problem on the start button on pc case and i didnt pay more attention.. The problem ratio was like 1 on 20 boots..
12-6 months ago the problem was bigger. 1 on 10 boots..
But now the problem is huge. The last days the ratio is like 1 on 2 boots! Also i used to close/open the psu 2-10 times till the pc finally boot, but now it takes more!! So i unplug pc for 20+ minutes and the i try again!! Now i am afraid to close it!!
The problem is not only when i cold boot, but when i warm boot also.. Today i closed the computer, i tried to boot it intermediately after, no success.
I tried the PSU paper clip test and i works ( when its on normal mode, not on hybrid ). Also i should note here that i had hybrid mode all these 4 years enabled for lower consumption and maybe less PSU wearing down . Today i switched back to normal mode!
I did a clear cmos from jumper today ( first time i failed cause i didnt read the mobo manual, glad i didnt break the mobo!! ) The only change i did after on bios is that i put from auto to XMP. I had it on AUTO all these 4 years..
I dont know if the problem still exists, but i wont close pc!!
Also sometimes the screen goes black ( like it switches off ) for a second.. Dont know if this info can help.. This started 2,3 months ago.
Maybe there is a short in the system? I am asking this cause sometimes when i press the power on button and i kick the case ( 😛 ) the system is booting.. Dont understand..
I Rechecked all the cables..
Some other notes : I have pc connected with tv through hdmi, my psu has a coil whine, i have also 2 HDDs, today i removed from mobo the +/- p led and Hdd led ( i connected them 40 days ago.. maybe this worsen the situation? ), i have also connected the following : mouse, keyboard, speakers, headphones, 1 HDD, A HP scanner fax machine. The light on START and RESET buttons on motherboard is on.
This is a video showing my problem. Its not me. I also read a lot boot problems with this motherboard..
I guess this is a hard situation so no any advises? Today i was brave enough to turn of the comptuer! When i tried to power on, i press once nothing, two nothing and after 5 seconds it turned on by itself/.. Dont know if this can help..
I have the default settings on bios and the problem still exist.
One more info. When i try multiply times to open the computer ( close/open psu many times ) and finally boots up, then a warning message comes that cpu fan is low ( under 600rpm ) and that i should go to bios to check it.. After some minutes it goes over 600rpm again..
Also i think that this motherboard overclocks the cpu automatically. Cause my cpu is 3,4Ghz and it goes on 3,8Ghz.
