Gigabyte GA-X58-UD5: Help with slow POST - Page 2

post #11 of 28
Thread Starter 
Boot time isn't important, it's just that I want to know why my board takes so long while others' boards POST in 10 seconds.

If I change it to IDE, will it really cut my POST from 50 seconds to 10?

I just changed from AHCI to IDE. Reduced POST time by roughly 4 seconds. Changed back from IDE to AHCI and now it's cut my POST time from 50 seconds to 35 seconds.

I'm not sure what happened but all my hardware is functioning as normal.

This still might seem slow to you but I'm a happy owner.

Strangely enough, this is directly related to my slow POST issue.

Anyways.

Having 12 GB is useful during video editing.
When I have AECS5 open, it's normally filled up ~90%.

Plus, it was on sale, lol.
