View Full Version : AsRock P55 Deluxe3 - BIOS POST times

P55 Deluxe3
i5 760
OCZ 8 GB DDR3-1333
Club 3D CGAX-H57524
OCZ Vertex2 60 GB
Samsung Spinpoint F3 1 TB

It is my intention to have a quiet, quick booting system.
I installed the last BIOS (1.50) and don't use any OC tweaking until now

After one week of configuration I am disappointed about the time "Power On Self Test" the BIOS of this motherboard takes. From Power-on to the beep takes about 25 seconds.

Any suggestions?

I investigated the boot process and the most time consuming items are:

37 Displaying sign-on message, CPU information, setup key message, and any OEM specific information - this POST code takes about 2 seconds
38 Initializes different devices through DIM - this POST code takes about 8 seconds

I disabled all unused interfaces and boot devices in the BIOS - but that didn't make the boot process quicker.

Suggestions ?
