So, I recently built my first computer and the only thing that's wrong with it is that for some reason it won't keep time. I've replaced the CMOS battery, and reset the cmos but the clock still does not keep time.

Motherboard:
Asus P8Z77-V Pro and from what I can tell I have all of the recent drivers.

OS:
Windows 7 home premium

If you need additional info just let me know. Thanks in advance.

Yes. When I set it with internet time, it tends to boot up at that time everytime. Right now it's at 2:10 AM on 11/16/12.

Can you explain what you mean? If you set it up with Internet time (what site are you using?), it should always be set to the current time from the atomic clock you're using. Does the time change normally while you're using the system or does it always stay at the same time?

1. I set it with internet time.
2. It keeps time for a couple hours give or take.
3. Loses time
4. Then on subsequent start ups it starts at the previous time and date I synchronized with internet time. I.E., If I set it a 8:00 AM on 11/18/2012, that's what my clock shows when I start up each time.

At this point I'm about to just RMA the board.

I would also RMA the motherboard as the clock should keep on running while the system is powered off.
