I'm a college CS grad who picks up freelance jobs when I have enough room in my schedule. Lately, in my spare time, I've been creating AI software applications on different platforms and drinking lots of milk. 1% only.

I've confirmed that it isn't the RAM itself, and my post says what happens when it has only one stick left in or when all the slots are full, basically still acts the same way.

All of the hesitations last the exact same amount of time too, it seems like the computer is detecting an issue somewhere and maybe trying to reconfigure some settings over and over, before it finally gives up on the 8th try and boots.

Yes, it does. Since I have to get to the Gateway Welcome Screen to select the boot menu for optical or USB. When it finally finishes the boot sequence described in my post, it shows the welcome screen, but only after all the hesitations and what seem to be failed boot attempts. By the way, thanks so much for your help.

I added some desktop specs to my question, after market hardware I replaced. Not sure if that helps.

Yes, it has been doing this for around a year or more. I had hoped like you that the new PSU might do it, but no such luck. Definitely no expanded caps after checking again to be sure.

Definitely no damaged capacitors, that's one of the first things I looked for, I recently replaced the PSU since I added a new GPU that required a larger PSU. :(
