Sorry to ressurect a thread from over a month ago, but for the benefit of people who might end up looking at this in the archive, I just wanted to say that this issue was a hardware problem. I ended up RMA'ing my motherboard. I got it back yesterday and ethernet works just fine.
Thanks to all who helped me with this issue

Which maybe means something to someone. ;)
<NO-CARRIER,....,UP> means it's configured to be up, but it doesn't sense an ethernet connectivity.
Check the cables, and the kernel driver.
Sounds like you might have the same problem as me and a few others...
