Slow boot time in Windows 7 - On an excellent machine

Built in November by me:
AS Rock X58 motherboard
6GB RAM 1866mhz 8-8-8-28 latency DDR3
1GB Radeon HD 4870 XFX graphics card
1TB (2x500GB) samsung spinpoint 7200 hard drives in RAID 0
750W PSU
Azza Solano full tower case with 5 fans (3 intake, two exhaust)
GeminII S cpu cooler
i7 920 2.66ghz
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit RTM build 7600 fully updated

Boot time from power button pushed: 1 minute and 24 seconds
Shutdown time from when shut down is clicked on Window 7: 20 seconds

Startup items:
Avast anti-virus
Malwarebytes anti-malware
CCleaner (clean upon startup then shutdown)
Adobe Reader Speed Launcher
Adobe ARM
Catalyst Control Center (for graphics card)

Registry is cleaned often with CCleaner

I just put in the new hard drive and did a clean install two days ago and utilized RAID 0 speed.

I am getting pretty much exactly the same boot time as before with one hard drive.
