Is that the motherboard you bought that end December 2013? You should still have that one year warranty over it.

Tell us the issues you're running into. Might some have a clue.

yupp >

ill take some screen shots, but basically, when i shut my PSU off, it half restores factory settings and voltages. it also wont allow me to change any values once i saved them. the only way to fix this is to clear CMOS and re input the values or load a profile. CPU and RAM speed is not recognized. ive tried flashing multiple bioses but nothing works. so i was debating to either RMA it again, or get a different one

Have you tried to change the little motherboard battery? This one could be used well or badly inserted.

Try to change the battery first...

Looks a missing feature somewhere.
Have you tried also to flash the Intel Mei Firmware v8.1 ASUS have on their support site?

Humm..i suggest you to check battery first, that would be cheaper. If not working, then try RMA since you still can.

What's Device Manager says about Intel Management Engine Interface (System Peripherals tab)?
