When I read things like this my first impression is to recommend replacing the CMOS battery.

And I'm with parsec . Do a re-install. Massive pain or not, it alleviates second guessing and eases troubleshooting issues should they arise afterwards.
That and the HE500 is getting a wee bit long in the tooth for todays systems. Three rails @ 17A(ea) and then the add-on cards you've installed pulling from the 12V1 rail too. I'd add a PSU to my shopping list.
