Sabertooth X58 Q-LED boot question

Hey all,
Just completed a system upgrade, and noticed something I may have overlooked, but am not sure if it is a new issue. I upgraded from a GTX295 to (2)6870's in CFX and formatted (boot from C300 SSD currently on SATAII port, with (2) 500GB Segate drives in RAID-0).
My Issue is that when i boot, the computer turns on, and the Q-LED feature which helps detect hardware failure will cycle thru each component before starting, taking about 10 seconds total. The LED indicator for each component (RAM,VGA,CPU,BOOT) will light, then shut off, then the ASUS splash screen comes on again. I've updated BIOS to the latest edition, but just don't think that the MOBO did this when I first got it...
After this, everything works fine... Boots normally and I can't detect any hardware issues yet, but I'm still cautious as to why it does this. Hardware in signature should be accurate, but I'll throw it out there again:
i7 970
Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz DDR3 (3x2)
(2) ASUS EAH6870 1GB
C300 64GB Boot
500GB Segate RAID-0 (1TB)
Corsair TX750W PSU

If anyone else running the X58 Sabertooth could tell me if their board boots to a few red LED's before actually going into the OS that would be good enough.
Thanks!

I've settled on the idea it doesn't mean anything... Maybe a bios update or something that I had ignored. System is completely stable with CPU, RAM, and GPU all overclocked, so my worries have subsided for the time being.
Am still curious to see if anyone else knows about this though.

It's not realy a problem, more a safety issue, but it annoys me, when everything is working ok.
You should disablde it in the bios.
