Default Asus P8P67 rev 3.1 + 2500k problems

Having very frustrating problems with the P8P67 mobo and the 2500k. I'm not doing any overclocking.

The boot is extremely slow about 50% of the time. Everything before entering the actual OS is very slow. Using the BIOS is very laggy, and the Windows 7 logo animation where the colors fly together is about 1 fps.

When windows does load, everything seems perfectly fine. The issue is, it doesn't boot about 1/3 the time. It gets stuck on the starting windows page.

I can't run memtest86+, it just doesn't do anything after the page loads - although the + in memtest86+ does blink.

What's going on? Is this just a faulty mobo?

First thing I would try is reseating all the components that are plugged into the mobo... memory, videocard etc... Something may simply be loose and not connected properly. I would also try clearing the cmos after you make sure everything is seated properly.

The most frequent culprits in a case like that are:
-improper bios settings
-memory
-PSU

Did you try running memtest before the system loads, off a USB stick?

I was hoping to avoid that, but it looks like I may have to.

BIOS settings are standard. I've cleared the CMOS and RTC RAM. Memtest from a USB ran without any errors.

Standard bios settings aren't always the correct ones for your hardware...common culprit, for example, is to have the drives default set to 'IDE' mode instead of (I forget, ACHI or something). I'd still go through the bios with manual in hand and double check all the hardware settings. Can't hurt to disable stuff you're not using, free up system resources too.

I've reinstalled everything on the board. I think the heatsink wasn't in properly. It seems to be running smoother now.

Thanks
