I have a UD5 and POST takes roughly 20 seconds on cold boot, and about 10 or so on a restart. I think it may just be whatever you have selected in BIOS, but at the same time, I don't have 6 sticks of RAM, but only 3 for 12 gigs... This is running in AHCI.
I'm pretty sure this is why. I removed 3 sticks and it cut ~10 seconds off POST time.

the post takes ages does to much checking.
I have intel ICh10R set to Raid 0 for my Intel G2 SSDs and have set the sata3 to AHCI.
I have my HDD on 1st boot. it has a usb KVM switch connected to it so picks it up as a hub (which has the keyboard / mouse / Monitor usb hub -> Printer and speaker connected)
I will update the motherboard Bios to latest FC version, try the quick boot utility and change the ACHI to IDE on the sata3 ports and see how it goes.
any other suggestions.
Enabling BIOS quick boot will help.
Also, don't set your HDD to first boot. Change it to your SSD.
For me, FC POST took longer than FA, FB, and FC6.
