    Question Long boot time and High temps

    Just move from msi to gigabyte.

    My spec are as followed.
    ep45-ud3p mother board
    Intel Q8200
    (2x)Corsair xms2 1066 2048 5-6-6-18 2.10
    Dual Crossfire 4870 Diamond oc edition ddr5
    Dark knight cpu cooler
    750 watt corsair psu
    Highpoint rocket raid pcie 2600x1 sas controller
    4 sas Fujitsu 73 gig hard drives raid 5
    Vista 64 bit

    It is taking me a total of 3 mins from power on to windows screen. I suspect something is wrong. All bios settings are set to optimized.
    my video card temp is 50^C and my cpu 34^C
    Any help is welcomed. I would love to overclock this computer but i have read the @8200 in not the ideal cpu to overclock thanks community.

    Set LOGO screen off in advance BIOS settings and see what's take the time (memory/detecting drives)

    just a few seconds to recognize the system and then load bios to raid controller.

    Have you loaded any security/antivirus software lately , and set it to run a boot scan at start up ?

    if so this could be whats causing the long boot time.

    One thing to check is your Highpoint Rocket raid drivers for windows ...make sure they are signed/certified ...this is very important for 64bit windows.
    Try and get the latest version.

    3 mins to boot into windows with your system is far too long , and i suspect its a driver issue in your case

    run device manager and select view devices by conection ..check that there are no problems and that your raid disks are using the right driver and not a microsoft default one.

    When you say "windows screen" is that the one when loading windows or desktop?
    What is the board revision and what BIOS version it uses? (shown on the top left at boot time)

    Please update to the latest BIOS, the new AHCI rom will boot much faster than the default one you likely have on your board >>

    Please also BE SURE you read this guide so you are clear on how to flash the BIOS, load optimized, and not mess up your RAID Array >>

    For 4GB of ram you need to set your own ram voltage to spec, and set MCH core to 1.20-1.24V

    Nice to hear you may have found the cause of your problems, sorry it is a expensive SAS drive!

    Not many users here with that CPU, I searched and found a few threads but none where users posted settings they used.

    If you need help with settings I can for sure help, let me know what cpu and ram speed you want to try and run and I can help you with some settings.

    Please give us a link to your memory as well, thanks
