While this does help for future attempts, that still doesn't explain why the motherboard seemed to have failed at a modest 3.2 GHz overclock on my i5-750...
As I said here, I got the computer working again by resetting the BIOS the hard way. Seeing as it now works, I'm probably going to keep it at the default clocks and hold off on getting a new mobo until lga 1150 is out.
