    Exclamation GA-EX58-UD4P slow boot

    Is it normal for these boards to take around 10-15 seconds from the time one presses the power button until the time the Gigabyte logo screen appears?
    If it matters, i'm using bios F7. I see there's an F9c, but is it better?
    Thanks.

    That sounds about right to me. The F9c bios is definitely better but I doubt that it will boot faster

    Of all the PC's i've built, this particular motherboard (my first build using Gigabyte) has to be the slowest to get to the manufacturer's splash screen! It seems to take twice as long as the Asus', Abit's & MSI's i've used in the past.
    So I guess it's a Gigabyte thing, eh?
    What benefits could one encounter by flashing to the F9c over the F7?

    The main benefit of the F9 BIOSes are that they have the newest AHCI firmware. If you aren't running your hard drives in this mode, then you won't have any benefit.

    And yes it is normal for it to take some time to boot up to the BIOS flash screen from a cold boot.

    same here, it is normal

    F9c has better ram compatibility
