That's not booting twice, believe it or not.
You can make it stop showing this ASUS logo "screen" twice by disabling Marvell Storage Controller in Advanced > Onboard Devices Configuration. You can also disable JMB Storage Controller if you are not using eSATA.
Also, you can shorten the POST time even more by disabling Full Screen Logo in the Boot tab. After that, change Post Report (a new option that appears) to 1 Second.
I don't know for certain, but that sounds to me like it would fix it.
Yeah it's weird: for some reason, ASUS AI Suite II shows the temps being too low (unrealistically low). So, I never use AI Suite II. I don't even have it installed.
Regarding Real Temp, try Real Temp 3.67:
My only HD is connected to the 6 GB/s Navy Blue SATA connectors on the board. Looking through the manual to see if I can find some info on the Marvell Controller thing.
Ok Real Temp is working now:

Gonna look into getting some better Thermal Paste soon. Is this any good:
