Default Corrupt BIOS? Main BIOS Checksum Error

Every once in a while, when I try to boot up my rig the boot process takes longer due to what I believe is a bad BIOS. I don't have a picture of the screen or remember exactly what it says, but I remember a part of it says "Recovering BIOS from..." That's all I remember. Did I get a motherboard with a faulty BIOS chip? Could this be the reason for my F@H EUE problems? I did verify that my overclock is stable when I built this rig a month ago.

Edit: It Happened again! Basically it's a black screen that says the following:

Main BIOS Checksum Error.............
Retrieving Recovery Source from HPA...............
BIOS Auto-Recovering.............
