Default Fast startup issue with H115i Pro RGB

I installed an H115i Pro RGB into my ROG Maximus X Pro, windows 10 64-bit machine. I had an issue with the computer black-screening me on startup after a cold boot.

After much head scratching I traced the problem to Windows fast startup in the power options. After disabling this the computer works perfectly.

As this is an odd problem with an obscure solution, I was wondering if anyone else had encountered this problem. As the only change to the system was the installation of the cooling (and subsequent adjustment of the BIOS) I can only think the water cooler or its software was at fault. I just can't figure out why. Fast startup worked perfectly with my old air cooler. I do use the automatic overclocking mode, so that may be to blame.

Windows had the latest feature update installed about the same time so it could be a problem with that. Has anyone else experienced boot issues after installing the H115i Pro? If so, try disabling fast startup.

I hope this helps other users.
