My System Specs

Default Gigabyte boot loop on older computer

So I built this computer 2 years ago and I have not had any problems although I am aware of some people having boot loop issues with other Gigabyte boards.

This is the system:

Motherboard
Gigabyte GA-X58A-UDR3 ver 2.0
Processor
Intel i-7-930
Memory
Corsair Dominator RAM TR3X6G1600C8D
Video Card(s)
Gigabyte GTX460
Hard Drive(s)
OCZ 60 GB SSD
WD 1 TB HDD
Optical Drive(s)
LG Blue Ray Writer and Lite-on DVD Writer
Case
Cooler Master HAF X
Power Supply
Corsair HX750
Sound Card
none yet
Monitor
Hanns-G HZ251 25 inch 1080p HD monitor
Operating System
Win 7 64 Home Premium
The computer has been working fine for 2 years but yesterday I powered it on and it would cycle on and off in 1 second intervals. Power on, fans spin, shut down, power on, fans spin, shut down, etc. It never gets to the BIOS or windows.

I have disconnect the powersupply and drained residual power by holding the power button - no effect
I have pressed the clear CMOS button on the board - no effect
I have removed the CMOS battery for 20 minutes - no effect

Any other bright ideas?
