Asus Zenith Extreme help

Hey peeps,
I just recently built a new rig, the specs are as following:

Asus X399 Zenith Extreme
AMD Threadripper 1900X
32GB Gskill Trident Z RGB
Western Digital 500GB & 512GB NVME M.2 SSDs
Corsair AX1500i
LG 32" 4K HDR Monitor
Ducky Shine 3 YOTS Edition
Corsair M65

I was really please that all was pretty ok on first boot. However i have two issues only.

The first is that i noticed that every time i turn the pc on, it powers up, turns off and turns back on again. I read that this is known as a cold boot, although i have never experienced this with my previous rigs. Is this something that is normal with the Zenith Extreme boards?

The second issue is that when my rig turns on and loads into windows, it looses connection to my BT Smart Hub and causes it to restart. At first i thoght it might be a faulty Ethernet cable so i changed it, hub still restarted. So then i installed latest driveres for ASUS website, the hub still restarts.
This is the worst one as it causes internet connection loss throughout the house.

I really appriciate all help guys, been a while since i last built a rig and also this is my first ever AMD one too

What settings have you changed in the BIOS - when it starts is everythinng running as it should? Look at CPUz etc to confirm.

In the bios, so far i have only changed the memory frequency to DDR4-3200Mhz

These are my CPUz screenshots. When the rig starts, all is running ok afterwards.

That cold boot thing would concern me. I've heard that if the CPU is not bedded correctly that can happen. I would take a look at that.

In my experience with asus boards, they've all done that weird cold boot thing when starting up after the power has been switched off at the supply. If I shut the pc down but left the socket on so the psu is left powered all the time, it never did it. I'd switch it off if I went on holiday and on first boot after coming home it would do it again.

My old P9X79 board did it. I'm sure someone said it was related to memory training.
