So I've just built my new computer (it's bluetooth ready (Asus P8P67 Pro Rev 3.1)), and I'm having trouble pairing my iPhone to it.

I follow all the correct steps to pair:
Make sure Bluetooth is ON on my phone
Keep the Bluetooth screen open (it says "now discoverable")
On my PC: Control Panel>Devices and Printers>Add device
My phone shows on the list of Detected devices
Click on it and Next

Then it tries to connect for maybe 10 seconds and says:

"This device indicates a Hardware Failure

Make sure your device is turned on and in discovery mode... Blah Blah."

Meanwhile, my iPhone shows no sign of picking it up. I've tried disabling windows firewall, the same thing happens.

Any help is appreciated.
