update: i purchased a new mobo (intel h77), new ram, new 3750k, and a new power supply.
new weird issues. system will not boot if i have a usb thumbdrive plugged into ANY of the usb slots. trying to update the bios and the system doesn't even let me get into the bios if a thumbdrive is plugged in.
tried every option i could think of in the bios concerning usb (legacy, boot order, etc).

intel boards (maybe other brands have it as well) have this jumper that when removed puts the board in "recovery mode." i remove the jumper, plugged in a thumbdrive that had the new bios file, booted up the system and it automatically updated bios. my board had a feb '12 bios on it and it upgraded to a june '12 bios. literally a new system.
pretty annoyed that intel would ship it out with that old of a bios and with that serious glitch but who knows, seems to be fixed now.
possibly unrelated, my crucial ssd m4 keeps being unrecognized. seems that it's a bug and have since updated to latest firmware. seems stable at the moment.
In short, i was having tons of problems that i was sure was bios related but the board was so gorked i couldn't even updated bios (till i realized the recovery trick). SOLVED
