BIOS actually slow the boot down?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is my first time posting my issues on any forum and also this forum...


I have a ancient GIGABYTE GA-G31M-ES2L motherboard, with F10 firmware flashed.
t is powered by a Corsair 450W 80plus, with Intel Core2Quad Q8400, 2x2GB Kingston 667MHz DDR2 RAM, a TPLink Wireless card and a GIGABYTE GT740M 2GB GDDR5 graphics card.
On the storage it is running on a Kingston A400 240GB SSD and WD Caviar Blue 1TB 7200rpm HDD.
The PSU also powering 3 CoolerMaster Sickle Flow 120 chasis fan (Actually there are 4 fans, I can't remember one of the fan model so I just ignored it, the ignored chasis fan I just let it disconnected from power since my PC won't boot or freeze at BIOS as I hooked up to my fan controller.)

I just roughly calculated it by using CoolerMaster's Power Supply Calculator and here is my result:Untitled.png.64ddacdaf6adda3b5bd43bc389bb2664.png

 

But what I wonder is why the BIOS takes such a long time even I skipped disk check or other options that will possibly slow down the POST?
I do even have the power to overclock my CPU from 2.66GHz way up to 3.2GHz so I think there is a lot of power there...
Maybe firmware is the possible reason that causing the slow down effect?

How long is "such a long time?"

Like normal takes 5~6 secs but mine takes 10 secs, sometimes may longer
