My PC Keeps locking in Bios. Help. New turns on and turns off. GPU or Bios needs updating?

Ok I just swapped cases and gpu's. Same i5 2500k and motherboard. (Msi P67-GD65) I just put in my new gpu and it played fine. The after about an hour it Froze. Like BSOD but without the blue screen. So kinda like same thing. Had to hold power button to shut it off. After that I turn it back on and conduct some HDD/RAM tests to make sure. On the RAM test it freezes and I click power button again. Now when I turn it on it goes on and looks like its going to bios but then turns off and back on. Repeats.. When I swap my gpu to my old gpu it boots up fine. DID my gpu just die? Dang it was brand new

What I'd try is to completely reset the BIOS, and check to see if there are anything making contact with the motherboard that is not supposed to.

PS: I was fixing an IDE cable, and I turned on my computer today, and the damn IDE cable literally caught fire while my PC was on. I LOL'd, and Turned off my PC and fixed the issue.

Know that feel. My Asus P8P67 Deluxe hasn't booted up the BIOS properly for the past two weeks and would need restarting a few times before it would. Today a red light came on the motherboard and the CPU fan hit 100%. It was the RED CPU LED that came on. The machine wouldn't start and I turned it off after taking photo's quickly for PCCASEGEAR's warranty. I'm pretty sure it was the motherboard, I disconnected everything besides the CPU, fans and motherboard and it still happened.
