So flawed boot times are like my aBit with a 3800 x2 is much faster than my Max board is.

I'll post some thing later in the same post just for the fun of it.

Hi

1. Go to Start, type msconfig and hit [Enter]
2. In the System Configuration Window, select the Boot tab
3. Click on Advanced Options
4. In the BOOT Advanced Options dialog, check the "Number of processors" check box, and choose 2 (or 4 if you have quad core) for the number of processors.
5. Click OK twice

It is good to Speed Up Vista Boot Time on Dual-Core PCs...

that doesnt really do anything. that features only there to reduce the amount of cores available to windows, for testing purposes.

Thats not all to blame.. As i said in my other post my ABit ( $100 2+ year ago) boots faster than my ASUS which was $250 1 year ago.

Although performance in games any any thing else is much better than the comp with a aBit mobo. There's nothing to gain unless you want to stay away from a slow to boot mobo which don't mean it be better there after.

42sec FTW! :D (I thought I had an ss of my 40sec run...)


I have noticed something here.. It seems that the average boot time for most people is around 60-75 seconds.. its really not that bad at all..I wonder how fast I can get this Velociraptor booting with a few more tweaks.....
