It was definitely an RST issue. One of the first things I tried was the latest RST driver from Intel's website for this motherboard. As it turns out they didn't have the most current RST driver under this listed under this board on there site, so I just searched for the RST driver and came up with a newer version. (10.0.0.1046 vs 10.8.0.1003)
How ridiculous, if Intel had kept their site update it would have saved me a couple of hours.
