The latest BIOS revision is 1143, should have included that in the post.
After resetting BIOS to optimal defaults, I can now consistently get the Intel boot screen but the system freezes at 5A

Please try to boot without GFX Card ,possibly this board has VGA, OR DVI-I built-in ,
connect the data cable to your SATA Drive if boots Normally , then your GFX CARD either has problem or Not Matching BEFORE DOING THE ACTUAL WORK GO TO BIOS SETUP TO LOAD DEFAULT BIOS
HOPE YOU WILL DETECT AND SOLVE
