wound up getting a P8Z68-V Pro Gen 3 motherboard from fry's electronics this afternoon as last night my comp completely froze up and had to do a hard shutdown. waited 5 minutes to power it back up and the board wouldn't even POST or let me into the bios. took the cmos battery out, let it sit overnight with the cmos jumpers on it, tried it this morning and still no luck with it.

I gotta say i like this new board. the UEFI is a welcome, though confusing, sight at first.
