I created an account just to tell you the weird boot up problem you are having is due to a redundant bios setting called 'cpu unlock' under bios which you should leave disabled because for our fx processors it doesn't do anything; the feature was for older cpus to unlock more cores (x2,x4). With my 8320 overclocked to 4ghz and the same motherboard as you I eliminated the shutdown boot up problem and shaved seconds off my overall boot. Also I have my vcore up a tiny +.075 for a stable 4ghz overclock as I have tested for stability using 30 minutes of prime95. I hoped this helped.
