My PC is running fine, but requires 2 attempts to start;
I switch on - I get a single POST bleep - then it powers off before anything appears on the screen - wait a few seconds - then it restarts by itself - single POST bleep - continues to boot up with BIOS logo on screen and then loads Win 7 normally.
Anyone got any ideas why this is happening.

Only "OC" changes Ive made are to run the 16GB of RAM at 2133Mhz via XMP profile 1.

If you run Memtest86+ do you get any RAM errors?

If you restore your RAM to recommended clock speed does it still restart? Normal problem debugging protocol is to restore to factory defaults and see if the problem continues.
