Any USB devices connected like Bluetooth or WiFi sticks?

your saying you go from pressing power on button to windows in 5 seconds?

Nope. Post passes in 5 seconds (in other words, I hear beep). Then it takes another 10 seconds to load Windows from my SSD.

turned out i had a bad bios, reflashed and the timing is running correctly now.
Even with a bad bios, everything was running fine, therefore I couldn't figure out the bug. It was weird but I'm happy it's fixed.

How did you figure it out? Did you just reflash without knowing for sure or were you able to pinpoint the issue first?

I couldn't pinpoint it, tried all options and last resort was to reflash...I'm trying to replicate the issue again by playing with the timing, I still have my doubt that it was a corrupted bios.

I've had the bios get corrupted before, at least that's the only explanation I come up with when I can do a cmos clear and the problem goes away.

When I see this it's usually when I'm playing with overclocks, and the bios will get stuck at 4.5 regardless of where I set the multi. Clear cmos, then when it boots it asks to load optimized defaults and then reboots and I have control of the bios again.

A few rare times since I bought the boards last April I've had to reflash a bios because it was unresponsive.

Did you try to use backup BIOS as primary? Or don't want to take the chance?

Well I 'fixed' my problem with the 1 minute post using a VGA in the PCI-E slots(s). As I suspected initially, the culprit was the combination of 3 things:
PCI-E OCZ Revodrive in the bottom PCI-E slot
VGA in the top 16x slot
Init display first BIOS setting reverting after setting it in the BIOS, saving, and restarting.

It looks like that setting simply does not work for some reason. When the BIOS detects a VGA in the PCI-E slot it begins checking all PCI-E slots, and hangs on the SSD. Apparently it is timing out after a minute or so, then finishing POST. The SSD is completely fine in the same slot when there is no VGA installed. I cleared the CMOS with the PSU switch off, switched to the second BIOS, repeated, switched back to the first, then I moved the SSD to the middle PCI-E slot and it could POST. I checked the 'Init display first' option after trying to set it again on a successful, normal POST and it reverted back to 'normal'. So now I can POST in a normal amount of time.

Hopefully if I give this information they can test this to confirm and possibly fix this on future release.

Hey guys random question here. On this page. there are 6 Intel MEI drivers. Does he sort the drivers by date? Which one should I download? There are ones with firmware + ROM and others with just "drivers". The newest one looks like Driver 8.1.30.1349. Should I use the one with firmware?

http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte/30530-latest-overclocking-programs-system-info-benchmarking-stability-tools.html

Why does stasio have newer drivers than what's on Intel's website? INF on Intel only goes up to "Intel® INF Driver 9.3.0.1026" while stasio has "Intel® INF Driver 9.4.0.1014". Should I download his drivers or the one off of Intel?

 

Thanks.
