Gibabyte GA-970A-D3 Post Loop (Bios related)

Its seems quite a few people are having this same problem with this board and no answers have really been reached in any of those threads. Hopefully with the amount of info I can scrape up we can figure this out here.

Just a few days ago, apon boot, after I get my 1 beep post code telling me all is good. The computer then proceeds to this screen.

The Computer then loops this process.

Now here's what I have tried so far

Tested each of my memory modules in ever slot alone and in pairs.

Resting CMOS by

a) Removing the battery for 1 hour as well as over night
b) Removing the battery and holding in the case power button for 3min to discharge power
c) Removing the battery and touching the 2pin jumper on the MB with a screwdriver as described in the instructions.

Trying to force my back up bios

and lastly, apon boot hiting alt+f12 to copy my main bios to backup.

NONE of this has worked.

SYSTEM INFORMATION

Here is a pic of my bios (after pressing f9)

On a side note id also like to state that there has been no hardware changes since this Computer has been build. I have not messed with anything BIOS related since I built it a Few months ago.
