Post code 26 causing boot loop?

Hello!

I recently put together my new computer and after the computer was properly shutdown and turned on several times the computer began to cycle on/off every few seconds. The looping always seems to occur after the post indicator hangs on post code 26 and seems to happen at random but quite often.

I have tried the usual troubleshooting, everything from breadboarding to removing CMOS but no dice.

My specs are as follows:

MOBO: Gigabyte p67a-UD7-B3 (F2 BIOS)
CPU: i7 2600K (NO OC)
VGA: HIS 6850
RAM: Kingston HyperX Grey Edition (KHX1600C9D3P1K2/8G)
PSU: Seasonic X750 Gold

You say you breadboarded; tried each RAM stick separately and it still did it....
You have a bad Mobo.

Well, after installing the setup on a new motherboard (GA-P67A-UD3P-B3) the looping persists. However I am unable to detect a post code due to the fact that the motherboard does not have a post code display installed.
I have also tried several different RAM kits and again, the looping persists.

Any insight as to what the problem may be?

I have not a clue. Breadbording would have revealed the faulty component...I am at a loss.

As am I......It seems to only loop upon exiting BIOS (during restart) or whilst trying to enter QFlash....
