    Windows 8.1 will not completely power off randomly

    My computer won't power off completely, SOMETIMES, i'm going nuts here.

    Here are my system specs:
    ASUS Forumla IV latest BIOS
    ASUS GTX 690
    2x4 2333 GB RAM
    ANTEC 1200W PSU
    1 SSD & 4 HDD
    Creative ZXR SB

    using latest drivers for all the above

    sometimes the PC power off completely when i shutdown, sometimes not, the screen would go black but the power won't get turned off, the fans are still spinning and no BSOD...I have to either hard reset or hold the power button to turn it off.

    I tried resetting CMOS, turning on and off the Fast boot feature in power options

    With or without overclocking

    Is there anyway to diagnose or investigate what is causing the PC not to power off completely?
