Most BIOS have a fast boot or post option which is on by default. Check out your BIOS settings. You may also want to check your handbook to make sure performance settings are on to help with your overclocking.


 Also think about dual booting.  You may find Windows 7 handy to have around.

Hmmm thanks for the answers,  well good news Chronic haggler I was messing around with the Bios settings as ThInk192 suggested and i figured out to remove around 4 seconds from the boot, just disable sata 2.0 boot or compatibility and the motherboard will only show the mainscreen once after showing your pci express hardware, still i still want to disable that reminder of my GTX 460 overclocked connected every time i turn on the pc, maybe i can bare with the mainscreen of black series ecs logo and then Windows startup but i still dont know how, i guess that's the only thing we can get rid of at the moment mean while we dont get a sata 2.0 hardware :P i guess anyone else can help with it? thanks again !

I've really only seen quick BIOSes on prebuilts.

I, too, have a long BIOS wait time...so I just put the OS in standby! :)

Smack the spacebar to wake it up and log in! LOL
