    using the vbs, best i got was 19 seconds still.
    still amazing, I wouldn't know when to go to the toilet anymore!

    If I turn on AHCI, I get a nice 8 second delay during the POST while my computer initializes the controller. Thus, I leave AHCI disabled as I don't get enough gain over the course of using my computer to earn back the lost 8 seconds.
    Hmm, 8 seconds really stands for a slow controller, but do you actually boot/reboot that often?!

    I just cannot imagine it, even in my dreams

    8" sounds a very high delay, mine is rather 4" or 5" but never higher than 6". You should check your BIOS settings, maybe your MB runs a useless test or is set with incorrect HDD controller values.

    Nope, 8 seconds is what it takes. The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R rev 1.1 with the F9 bios. I've read of others with the same issue on this board and other Gigabyte boards. I've also read that the F11 bios update drops the delay down to about 4 seconds....but I'm not inclined to flash my BIOS for a 4 second increase.

    In all honesty, every test that I did with a stopwatch when AHCI enabled was a tad bit slower, my HDTune results were a few MB/s lower...so I'm completely satisfied with the box in IDE mode.

    And across the board, this mobo doesn't POST very fast. From a power button press to "starting windows" in IDE mode takes 21 seconds. But then with my SSD, it boots up in about 15 seconds. Performance once it's up and running is flawless. It's stable and runs great. I'm very pleased with this board.

    I can relate to that... I get a minor performance increase when in Windows, nothing that really makes a noticable difference, but rather just that my HDD access speeds in benchmarks show a minor improvement. With AHCI enabled, regardless of my first boot device, it always checks for media in my SATA DVD-RW, which takes about 4 to 5 seconds. Other than that, I haven't noticed any other slow downs.

    I hardly ever restart my PC anyway, once it's on, it's on for a few hours at a time... So it really doesn't bother me in the slightest.

    Mine is 60seconds. I'm sure I wasted probably 10 seconds or more doing all that login stuff.

    after changing bios settings


    I changed about 4 different bios settings and my restart time went down to 54 seconds.

    I disabled a few items that were starting up, like that drop box app. I got it down to 48 seconds now. I'm sure I could do more tweaking and get my restart time down even further but 48seconds is more than fast enough for me. I can live with 48 seconds.

    117 seconds? Holy cow! That's like almost 2 minutes; 1.95 minutes to be exact.

    We don't all have beasts contained inside a shiny box.. Lol. This is just a bragging thread anyway. By the way Jasin, there's a space in your profile to enter system information (link), you maybe want to fill it in? I'm curious to see what machine you're running there.. Must be a nice one.
