    Or CPU is damaged, than board could turn on and turn off after one second ? it do it constantly, I must push power button for a few second

    - LEDs on board (CPU activity) when starts up blink one green, but in the past blink all of LEDs. I really don`t know what is demaged, board or CPU and what send to RMA.

    You need another CPU to find out if the CPU is bad, that way you can test the board or CPU.

    Or test that CPU in another board, then you will know if it's the CPU.

    You are right, you can't guess which it is, you have to somehow test one or both in another setup, or send them both back which is not ideal.

    Have you checked the cpu socket for any bent pins?

    @lsdme have they done away with the uncore freq on these mb/cpu?

    Well since it was working, and then just stopped due to his overclock attempt, I would think his socket was ok. But you are right to ask, maybe he has removed the CPU between then and now, so could have bent some pins.

    Ya, there is no uncore in P67

    Thanks for the pics, can you take some others?

    If so, please take more CPU socket pics from different angles (From side towards CPU not from above - and also new one from above too if you can), without flash, in a well lit room.

    Also, do not resize the socket images, and use Macro if the camera has the option.

    Thanks, as of now that socket image is not good enough for me to see the pins at all (I can see partial of 1/4, that's it)

    I check all pins and all of them are good, no damage or burned pins

    Try this method to invoke the backup BIOS.

    Turn off the PSU Switch at the back. With that off, hold down the case power button. Then while holding that down, switch the PSU back on. The board should power up.
    As SOON as it powers up, *RELEASE THE POWER BUTTON FIRST*, then as fast as you can, hit the power supply switch again in the back to shut the board off *before it shuts off by itself.*

    Then, turn on the PSU back switch, and then press the case power button normally.
    This should cause the board to go into recovery mode. It may reboot twice or three times to do this.

    Does this help?

    Please post some more images, thanks!

    Honestly, I believe you, but I have had many members say the same in the past but after posting images I could find several bent pins. You may be fine, just would be nice if we could rule that our for sure from our end.

    I think the problem might be the motherboard.
    I also have a p67a-ud4 B3 and have the same exact problem.
    The motherboard was running fine for about five days with a 2500k at 4.5ghz@1.360vcore with most of the power saving settings off. I tried enabling the power saving settings and booted to windows and noticed that the idle vcore and cpu speed didn't drop at idle. I decided to disable the power saving settings since they weren't down clocking my cpu at idle and at the same time I lowered the cpu vcore from 1.360 to 1.355, saved and exited bios.
    However, instead of rebooting normally it started cycling on/off with the green led lit and has been unable to recover since, even after trying some the suggestions you guys made to clear the CMOS.
