My PC gets to a blank BIOS screen, then endlessly restarts itself.

My PC gets to a blank BIOS screen, then endlessly restarts itself.

Specs:
-GIGABYTE GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 Motherboard
-Intel i5-2500k
-8GB DDR3 Ram
-Phanteks Eclipse P400 Series PH-EC416P_WT ATX Mid Tower Case
-Rosewill Switching Power Supply 500W
-GTX 1050ti

Things I have tried:
-Clearing CMOS with a jumper
-Clearing CMOS with a screwdriver
-Booting with no peripherals connected to motherboard
-Reseating ram
-Booting with only one stick of ram
-Taking out cmos battery and replacing it
-Switching out CMOS battery with an identical one
-Taking out CMOS battery and holding power button for 10 seconds

These have not changed anything at all.
I know it is some sort of issue related to the motherboard, because I have tested with a motherboard from a different computer, and it worked perfectly. The motherboard that the PC worked perfectly with was an ASUS A55BM-PLUS.The motherboard that does not work is a Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 with an i5-2500k. When I use this motherboard in the computer, the PC seems to be stuck in an endless bootloop. It will turn on for about 5 seconds (all the lights and fans turn on) and get to a blank blue BIOS screen: https://imgur.com/qf2oKcr then it will restart itself. Does anyone know if I can fix this? Or is the motherboard just dead?

  1. Take a close look at your CPU cooler. Is it sitting completely flat on the CPU, so it's cooling properly?

    Yes, the cooler is installed correctly and is flat touching the cpu.

  3. Have you looked for any bent pins in the CPU socket?

    Could that be a possible cause? I'll check this in the morning since its already 10PM here.

    You just need to keep ruling out every possible cause, one at a time.

    I checked and all the pins are fine

    Have you tried booting with the video card removed and just using the on-board graphics?
