I bought an FX 8350 that came with the Wraith Cooler.

I was surprised that it all lit up and thought it was pretty cool. I shut down my PC at the end of the day and turn it back on the next.


When I turned it back on I noticed that the RGB ring didn't come on but the AMD logo did. After searching for answers and finding none I decided to not worry about it.  


The other night my power went out and when I started my PC the next day the ring was working again. I shut down and started the next day and again the ring wasn't working. 


For an experiment...When I shut down for the evening I decided to cut the power off the PSU and sure enough it is working again.


Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

For reference my MOBO is a Gigabyte 990 FXA UD3 r5
