They aren't beautiful but performance wise, I consider them unbeatable.

FYI if the board keeps going to C1 post code over and over, that is the board checking out your system stability because your OC is more than likely not that stable.
boot time is not the same as POST time.
my boot is 15 seconds, my POST is 45.

i am running AHCI right now but it did this back when i was using IDE.

i always get FF (normal boot) and have never seen C1 before. also i am sure my OC is stable.

also, some have suggested unplugging all external devices because the MB scans through those during POST. i did that but it still took 45 seconds.

I know MY BOOT TOTAL is 20 seconds POST is 10 and then windows logon screen to desktop is another 10-11.

I have all unneeded stuff disabled including ESATA, Gigabyte SATA2, I do have a Raptor on ICH10R though. I have both LAN ports, and 4 USB 2.0 devices, USb 3.0 is enabled. I think unplugging devices really helps with windows boot, POST just a little bit because it scans both ways. My system jumps to 75 when screen appears and then goes to FF.

This forums is a mix of very new people and very experienced people and those in between, The reason i linger here is because of the mere traffic. XS does not have this traffic in POSTs, more like people just linger.

interesting--i'll disable everything i'm not using and report back with results.

yea try that. If you can tell me the Codes as well that stay for long periods of time as well as what part of POST takes long. FYI you enabled quick boot in BIOS then enabled it in smart6? You have to do it this way/order and not the other way as it doesn't work.

Your X58A-UD5 can pass 230blck if your CPU is up for it. You paid for build quality, gigabyte will NEVER come out with stupid gimmicks like votlage read points and panels for 2 reasons.

#1 there is no need for voltage read points as gigabyte uses the iTE monitoring chip instead of the cheaper windbond chip that is not accurate, your monitoring chip reads within 1%-3% of actually, vcore and qpi/vtt are withing 1%.
#2 gigabyte makes their own boards unlike ASUS and EVGA, they cannot afford to open a new department for stupid panel design, as if there is a problem they lose A LOT of money.
Your board is much better built, power phase design is superior for digital systems, and you can push cleaner voltage. your BIOS is better, maybe just the color is off. Read MY review in MY sig, you will not be disappointed you did.
Just out of curiosity who makes ASUS's boards then?

Yep that is news to me.. I always under the impression AS Huge of a company and has been around forever.. Asus would make there own stuff.

They outsource almost everything now, foxconn and ESC make the majority of everyone's boards. They even offer design, like you can get them to design it for you but ASUS does that themselves.
http://www.digitimes.com/news/a20100628PD208.html

news like this all the time.

That is how they can afford to make little gimmicks like the ROG stuff, because ESC and foxconn already have designs or other companies have designs and ASUS is able to buy them. When you make your own products its harder to do that.

ASUS and Most companies DID used to build their own, but now it is just not economical. It is cheaper to outsource.

I don't think my X58 Sabertoof would be considered high end.
