Sorry to hear that. You could try the steps I laid out for a user with a similar problem and see if they help before doing the clean install.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64


So tried a lot of things including clean install windows. Problem still exist.

Some discovery:
When I go into Bios and make it so that only 3 of the 6 cores are enabled, I am able to load to windows, but when I enable 4+ cores the system goes into restart loop.

The loop is odd because I can stay in the bios a long as I want, but if I want to load OS, Live CD or anything they will not load.

Sometime I am able to see some sort of loading screen weather it be Windows logo or Live Disk loading data, but it will loop withing sec or 2 after those process.

Any Thoughts.

Have you taken out the CPU to see if there are any bent pins where it interfaces with the motherboard? Also, check for any signs on the motherboard that it is not interfacing correctly. Make sure to Avoid Static Damage to Your PC when checking the CPU since it takes less voltage than you would feel through static shock to damage it.
