I have a ocz agigilty 3 120gb sata 3 ssd and a standard 1tb hhd aswell. Now I was using this on my asus p67 board, installed windows and then once all installed i attached the 1tb all was working well and booting extremely quickly ect.
Now my problem is i have recently changed my motherboard to a gigabyte ga-z68xp-ud4 and i have cleared my ssd and reinstalled windows on it. Once windows was installed i have then attached my 1tb drive. When windows boots it takes about 15-20 second to load in to windows it self from the welcome screen. This used to take about 2-3 seconds. I cannot figure out for the life of me what is going on. I have tried changing settings in the motherboard but to no avail.
First download and install AS SSD. Do Not need to run the benchmark program. I would guess that partition alignment shows up correct (OK). Look at (1) firmware version, I think the Agility III is upto -15. Then look at driver. For the Z68 plateform this should be iaSTor. If msahci, you should download and install the latest Intel RST driver - not a biggy as not your problem, but iaSTor performs better than msahci (default windows driver). If it shows pcide- BAD), need to swich it to msahci, then install the Intel driver.
Been between work and home, would have told yo Firmware would not make much difference.
Just a couple of comments.
I have 2 agillity IIs (w/FW 2.13) I also Have 2 Curicial 128 gig M4s. The agility IIIs are not a high performance SSD - In fact I just replaced mine with a 128 gig Samsung 830.
Boot time, excluding Post: Your first time (2->3 Sec) was exceptionaly fast. The agillity III - 14 Sec, replaced with 830 - 12 Sec, The M4's are in a laptop and take - 17 Sec. Times are give/take a second, and are from "start loading OS untill the little circle stops spining. Times will vary basted on start up apps that must load.
If only windows 7 was installed + updates + drivers then 20 Sec is on the High side. 15 -> 20 Sec is adout right for Windows plus avg program loads (Office, IE, Photo editing program + a few others)
