All the drivers are installed trough windows update.

I just need my PC to shutdown without holding the power button, maybe any settings i can find in the control panel ?

That's what I do too. Usually the chipset drivers that come with your board are outdated anyway. So you should be good to go there. I would try the default settings in BIOS, do a clean barebones install, and check for stability. Then overclock.

The reason it's not shutting down on it's own is because of an issue. So no, there is no setting for this. Hence why we're trying to help you troubleshoot it

As for your drivers, you should be getting the latest drivers available from the manufacturers of the specific hardware. Very few drivers through Windows Update are decent. They're meant to be placeholder drivers until you get the original drivers. (Edit: This is true for the important drivers such as video card, audio, chipset or any other major piece of equipment. Network adapters and modems etc are fine using Windows Update drivers.)

Now that you mention it, I just remembered there is a setting in power options for the power off button. You might want to see what's up in there. I would be shocked if it's somehow set to something other than power off though. But it's worth a shot.
