well we figured it out last night. Was too tired to plug in the computer and post this last night when I got home.

Anyway, the problem was the bios. Asus p5b is a bit older so it needs a bios update to work with the new intel cpu's. Wasn't exactly my first guess, but we figured this had to be the problem after a couple of hours of testing the hardware.
