Okay, so we know that your mobo supports the CPU according to the QVL. Try resetting all mobo options to default, maybe reset the CMOS by removing the battery on the mobo for a min or using the jumper on the mobo. Not sure about your jumper, would be easier to just remove the battery (likely). Make sure all power is removed from the cpu. I recommend you unplug the PSU from the wall, turn off the PSU switch on the back, and then press and hold the power button on your case until all residual power is drained from the mobo circuits. Remove the battery for a minute or so, and then put everything back together. See if the problem persists.

My next step, stab in the dark, would be to reflash the BIOS a few more times. I've read on a few forums that it took some people a few flashes before it went away.

Have you tried updating the chipset drivers lately?

If that doesn't work, contact Asus and start a trouble ticket. Follow thier steps from there. I'm not sure what else to do as far as ruling out anything else, save maybe triple checking all your power/data connections going to and from the mobo, but likely this is a problem that is between your cpu, mobo, and possibly ram. Speaking of which, have you ran memtest yet?

This is all I've got at the moment, but that isn't to say that someone else may offer up some better suggestions. I haven't personally experienced your problem, nor have I seen it first hand. I'm just using my knowledge to rule out things I think could potentially cause this problem. In the end, you could be looking at a cpu or mobo failure. Let's keep our fingers crossed. If I think of anything else, I'll follow up with another post. Keep us updated with what you find.
