Yeah, that was the case for my. On my gigabyte GA-ep45-ud3r with the F9 bios, turning on AHCI introduced an 8 second delay at boot. With an upgrade to the F12 bios, that delay dropped to under 2 seconds. But I wasn't willing to give up 8 seconds at each boot for such a miscule performance increase.
