This is on the new board or old board? What changed, just reseat of the CPU?

MaxMekker, assuming the original board... did you discover a problem with the CPU that led you to remove and reseat it? Or maybe you just deduced that you should simply "start over", clearing the CMOS, etc.? Tell us the story, dude!

Glad you solved it, but curious as to what was the cause or where the actual problem was...

Those complaining of LONG post/boot up times w/ Gene, here's why I question what some of you expected ...

My OLD system = HP Pavilion, Asus IPIBL-LB (HP Benicia-GL8E) MoBo, Q9650 Yorkfield Quad-Core 3.0 Ghz CPU, 8 GB G. Skill Pi Black 800 Mhz DDR2, SeaGate Barracuda 7200 1TB 32MB Cache HDD, running MS Vista Home Premium 64 bit SP2.

TURN ON the POWER button @ 3:05:00 ... get to Windows Password Loggin @ 3:07:05 ... so yeah 2 minutes and 5 seconds.

versus

My NEW system = Asus Maximus IV Gene-Z68 MoBo, Core i7 2600K SandyBridge 3.4 Ghz CPU, 16 GB CORSAIR Vengeance 1600 Mhz DDR3, Crucial M4 CT064M4 64 GB SSD + Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 7200 1TB 64MB Cache HDD, running MS Win 7 Pro {64 bit SP1}.

TURN ON the POWER button @ 3:19:30 ... get to Windows Password Loggin @ 3:20:05 ... yeah 35 seconds, so I cut 1 minute and 30 seconds off my wait time.

SO FOR ME ... I've GOT NO COMPLAINTS ... but Honest Question, How long did you Expect it to take ?

I thought I'd see an improvement over my old system, but I'm in at a quarter of the time it used to take me, which is why I couldn't be happier, are you saying on another MoBo/System you used to get into Windows in under 30 seconds ?

went over to the asus forum and cried for help, :-) and a fellow la king fan mentioned (thanks man ) a few pages back steped up. all god now.
I did also remove the sound sticker when I was at it with the cpu, as it was of metal and touching several small bit's and bobs, probably nothing, but I removed it.
so I got a new board and mem sticks on it's way, hehe. Quess they are going back.

thanks folks, I will return when I need tuning help :-)

We have a similar setup... I'd guess we have similar boot times.
Sounds like yours is taking a while to POST as well... that doesn't bother you? Once it POSTs the computer starts up at lightning speed. It's really not that big of a deal I guess.

Let's be honest now, the only benchmark that truly matters is how fast your computer boots. That's all I've got to tell people when asked why it was necessary to drop a grand on this thing.

I recorded the debug LED from t=0 until showing "AA" (meaning windows)... gonna upload to youtube as a private video. Anyone claiming NOT to have this problem, could you do the same?

So what's the difference in definition to you between POST and BOOT I guess would have to be the 1st question ?

IF you say it's taking mine a long time too, I arguably don't have much to compare it against other than what I posted to you above, so again for me getting into Windows at 1/4 of the time it used to take me, NO I have ZERO, None, Na, Su, Auf, NADDA, Nyet, Nari complaints at all

Interesting ... about the "AA" LED comment, I'll double check from POWER ON button push 'til "AA" is lit, and see if that's 35 seconds +/- also.

First, some new toys:



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Hopefully I will have time to at least get the GPU installed and tested. I will put it under water later this week.

As far as boot times go, this sometimes can be subjective. For instance to LA Kings it can seem fast even if it takes 5 minutes because of what he is comparing it too, his previous setup. Others, such as myself, are comparing it to other 1155 or 1366 setups. For me it's still fast and no it does not take 35 seconds from the time I push the button to when it hits AA or for that matter when I am on the desktop. I did not time this, but I know how long 35 seconds is because I am impatient and I owned an EVGA Classified in a previous life and that was slow. I even have RAID enabled which will slow the boot process down. If you are having long boot times, it could be instability, bad driver installs or other software related issues. My bet is it, if you watch the post LED and it cycles a couple times (not reboots) then you have an instability issue. If it gets to the info screen showing your CPU and lags from there to get into Windows, you have a software/driver issue where the system is having to configure something every time it boots. What I would suggest if it is the first, remove all non-essential hardware, i.e. additional HD's and then boot and see if you have the same issue. Process of elimination can point you to what is causing the long boots. If it is the latter, then I would suggest a fresh install and once you have the basics installed see if you have the same load times. Again, this is a process of elimination to figure out where the hold up is. If neither solves the issue, try reflashing your BIOS and redo your settings, do not use saved settings, and see if that solves the issue. That's about all I can think f right now, but try that and see if that helps.

...

Interesting ... about the "AA" LED comment, I'll double check from POWER ON button push 'til "AA" is lit, and see if that's 35 seconds +/- also.
Let's say ~20 seconds before AA is lit. I'm assuming everyone else's board just flies through these debug numbers.

POST when I see the ROG splash screen appear. The screen is dark for 99% of that vid. The splash screen appears approx. 20 seconds in, at which point the bios hands everything over to Windows and AA lights up. That's what I've been defining POST as, anyways. (I don't know what it is...)

I have tried removing all SATA connections other than my M4 boot disk. Booted, same situation. Went a step further and tried removing a stick of RAM. Booted, same situation. Removed that stick of RAM and put the other one in a different slot, same situation. Not sure what else to try? (I've reset the CMOS on multiple occasions, definitely not my settings. Was like this from day one.)

Is it safe to flash the bios to one of the more recent versions? 0403 is the most recent stable version (to my knowledge), though last I looked there were more. See Here. I may try flashing 0403 over itself and see what happens.

Again, it doesn't bother me nearly as much as it did when the computer was still brand new. If it turns out that a bios update takes care of it, that'll be swell. I'm not going to stress over it anymore though.

I would turn of the ROG logo in the bios so you can see what is happening on the screen. It's under the boot menu. Also, there is a setting to allow you to adjust how long it sits there, so you can turn that down to say 3 seconds which should help also.
