@itgoesto11 First welcome to the forum, now i assume that the parts that have some form of warranty! if they do have warranty, have you considered returning the motherboard? i wold consider doing that especially coz of the Ivy Bridge Processor i5 3570K, reason for that is Boards equipped with Z77 Chipset work straight out of the box with the Ivy Bridge Processor, so i would advice take back the board and get an AsRock Z77 equivalent. Another option would be return the i5 3570K and get a second gen i5 2500K or i5 2550K, or another option would be get a shop near you that can perform the BIOS update for you or where they were bought. Most motherboards need a compatible processor in the motherboard to be able to perform a BIOS update.
