GIGABYTE GAMING 5 x99 Booting Issues HELP

Been pretty frustrated about this motherboard ever since I got it, and I don't know why I never returned to get an ASUS one., (I think it was because of the deal) but I will learn for the next time. This motherboard has so many problems just booting up, side from a long bios delay screen then a flashing RAID 0 Screen then the boot. I can't use any ram speeds above 2133 or the board just crashes, and I tested my ram and cpu with my friends motherboard and his is fine. well to cut to the Chase,

 

My boot time now takes 2 minutes and the first minute and 20 is just the first BIOS screen that pops up displaying the Gigabyte logo where you can't even enter bios or do anything, then after that 1minute hang it will boot normally displaying my Raid 0 being active then the second bios screen that pops up for 3 seconds then finally windows. IDK why and how but the first BIOS screen freeze or w.e it is just started happening, and I know it has nothing to do with my raid 0 SSD performance since I just benchmarked them and I'm gettign 1gb read and writes. Can someone please help ?

 

ALSO I recently purchased the new ASUS PG279Q monitor and it doesn't work sometimes when it says no display port signal.
my gpu is a 980ti strix.

Have you tried using Fast Boot or a similar setting in the BIOS? As for your monitor, seems like its a simple loose cord or damaged slot.

@NvidiaLoverIntel Windows 10?

 

 

Worth a shot trying to optimize it. 2 mins to boot on raid 0 SSDs, something definitely is off kilter.

Sadly im on Windows 7, and the thing is the real boot time without the first BIOS lag freeze screen w.e you call it takes up 1 minute and 20 seconds. I have the fast boot option disabled in the BIOS,(never used it before anyways).

Just out of the blue this last month this first BIOS post screen has been appearing, all I did was move my gpu one slot down too. Pretty sure it has nothing to do with windows.

Why did you move the GPU down? Top slot is probably your X16 slot. Things can get funky otherwise. Not in ever case but some. 

Windows 7... I still have Windows 10 on a separate HD..................... if not for the big brother crap alone but for other reasons as well.  That rules that out I guess. Take a few ram sticks out and see if you don't boot faster. RAM checking goes on during boot up and that could be part of the issue, the more you have the longer it can take sometimes. Something is def up though taking 2 mins. RAID 0 takes longer but maybe.. 20 seconds? Not 2 minutes. Maybe check though with another drive if you have a spare one with an OS on it and try it solo, if you don't have Win 7 to install on it you could try Ubuntu for free.

Yeah that's true. my 2nd slot is also x16 and I tried doing that with my hard drive which took longer when it got to the windows 7 loading screen, but it's the exact same time on the first bios screen which doesn't even do anything it just hangs there. Reason why I moved my gpu down was to accommodate my new Noctua NH D15. I originally had a swiftech H220X and it fucking died, the pump just stopped working and after 4 rmas on the original H220 and now this H220X is dead on me I have given up on swiftech as a whole. sure their support was decent but their products sucked ass. Would not recommend.

As for my bios issue I emailed gigabyte but the last time I went through them it took them 1.5 weeks to fricken reply.

Hanging up for a minute and 2 seconds at the splash screen sounds something is way up... does that board have an LED error code display on it? Can you see what its doing when booting up, like counting to 50 or 75 until splash screen pops up? Maybe its posting error codes?
